Jammu-Srinagar national highway closed


JAMMU, March 3 : The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was closed for traffic on Wednesday due to a landslide that blocked the road near Banihal, officials said.

An official said the highway was blocked by the landslide during the night.

The highway has remained mostly open for one-way traffic this winter. The vehicles from Srinagar to Jammu were scheduled to move on the highway on Wednesday.

The highway is a lifeline of the Kashmir valley and the main road link connecting Kashmir with the rest of the country.

The Kashmir-bound trucks laden with essential supplies and other vehicles pass through the highway.

The Mughal road which is a second road link connecting Kashmir valley with the Jammu region through Bafliaz in Poonch is closed due to snow accumulation.
