Leh highway reopens, Kashmir, Mughal road through

Leh highway reopens, Kashmir, Mughal road through

Srinagar, Apr 25 (UNI) The national highway, connecting Ladakh region with Kashmir, reopened on Wednesday after remaining closed for four days due to snowfall and slippery road conditions.



Meanwhile, the 300-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway and 86-km-long historic Mughal road are also through for traffic.



'We have resumed traffic on the 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh national highway,' a traffic police official told UNI.

He said traffic was suspended on the highway following fresh snowfall and slippery road conditions, particularly between Sonamarg, Zojila, Zero point, Meenmarg and Drass.

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO), responsible for the maintenance of the highway, pressed into service sophisticated machines and cleared the snow, he said adding traffic will be allowed from both sides on the highway with some restrictions.

Traffic will be allowed from Drass for Sonmarg in Kashmir from 0500 hrs, he said, adding that Ladakh-bound traffic will be allowed from 1100 hrs.



Meanwhile, the Mughal road, connecting Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu region, was through for only one-way for Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs). Traffic will ply from Bufliaz to Srinagar today and no vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction. The road is still very narrow at several places and vehicles had to pass through huge snow walls.



The national highway, connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country was also through for traffic, the official said. However, LMVs will ply from both Srinagar and Jammu, while heavy vehicles will continue to ply one-way only. HMVs will ply from Jammu to Srinagar only and no heavy vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction.

He said people are requested to undertake the journey on the highway only after confirming the status of the road from Traffic Control Units (TCUs) set up in Srinagar, Ramban and Jammu.
