Jammu: The 300-km Jammu-Srinagar national highway today reopened for light motor vehicles (LMVs) after being blocked for two days following massive landslides, a traffic official said.
“Lighter vehicles have now been allowed to move from Nagrota towards Srinagar between 5 am to 10 am and from Levdora to Qazigund between 10 am to 3 pm. Commuters have been directed to cross Jawahar Tunnel, which connects Jammu to Kashmir, by 3 pm,” the official said.
The highway, the lone all-weather road linking Kashmir with the rest of the country, was closed for vehicular traffic on September 11 after a massive landslide at Morh Passi in Udhampur district damaged a bridge and blocked the road.
Officials have been directed to ensure that vehicles are not parked in any landslide or vulnerable zones under any circumstances. (PTI)
