Jammu-Srinagar Highway Remains Closed


The Jammu-Srinagar highway remained closed for the sixth consecutive day today.

A traffic department official said that even as hectic landslide clearance operation was on in the Ramsoo-Ramban sector, a massive landslide hit the highway at Marog yesterday delaying the opening of the highway.

Unless the landslides are cleared, no traffic will be allowed, he added.

Over 3,000 vehicles are stranded along the highway for the last six days, creating a crisis of essential supplies in Kashmir Valley and huge rise in airfare.
