Jammu-Srinagar highway after fresh snowfall

JAMMU

Fresh snow in the Banihal sector on Wednesday forced closure of the Jammu-Srinagar highway.

The Traffic Department was set to allow one-way traffic from Srinagar to Jammu on Wednesday, but the decision was reviewed as weather deteriorated all along the 300-km-long road.

“Nightlong rains triggered shooting stones in some portions of the highway in Ramsoo-Ramban sector.“Right now, the highway is closed for traffic. The decision will again be reviewed depending on the weather,” a traffic official said.

The Met has forecast widespread rain and snow in Jammu and Kashmir during the next 48 hours till Friday.
