Traffic on Ladakh highway resumed, Kashmir, Mughal road open

GJ Report
Srinagar, Nov 29: Traffic on the national highway, connecting Ladakh region with Kashmir, was resumed after remaining suspended on Wednesday morning following fresh snowfall during Tuesday and Wednesday night.
However, the Srinagar-Jammu national highway and historic Mughal road are through for traffic, a traffic police official said.
He said there was fresh snowfall at Zojila and Meenmarg on the 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh national highway.
Traffic was suspended as a precautionary measure to avoid any accident as the road had become slippery this morning. Later, traffic was resumed following improvement in the weather and road condition.
However, he said, since only one-way traffic is allowed between Sonamarg-Zojila pass and Meenmarg on the highway, today vehicles will ply from here to Leh and no vehicle will be allowed from opposite directions.
But, both way traffic will continue to ply from Kargil to Leh.
Meanwhile, light vehicles will ply from both sides on the 300-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway, linking Kashmir with the rest of the country.
But, heavy vehicles will ply from Srinagar to Jammu today and no heavy vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction. The heavy vehicles will have to cross Jawahar tunnel before 1000 hrs, he added.
Similarly, the 86-km-long Mughal road, connecting Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch, was also through from both sides.
However, people are requested to contact Police Control Room (PCR) before starting their journey to know about the condition of roads.
