Only one-way traffic to continue on Srinagar-Jammu NH

Only one-way traffic to continue on Srinagar-Jammu NH

Srinagar, Feb 15 (UNI) Despite major improvement in weather, only one-way traffic will continue to ply on the 270-km-long Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, the road connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country.

However, one-way traffic has proved a success and for the past more than two weeks, traffic is plying normally on the highway, which otherwise was witnessing frequent suspension of traffic during this winter.

On Saturday, traffic will ply from Jammu to Srinagar and no vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction, a traffic police official told UNI.

He said that Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) were allowed to move in the morning from 0700 hrs to 1200 hrs while Heavy Motor Vehicles (HMVs) will be allowed in the afternoon.

Only one-way traffic will continue on the highway till further orders.

The 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh National Highway, the only road linking Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh with Kashmir remained closed for the past over two months. There is more than 6 feet to 12 feet of snow on the highway, including at Zojila pass, which has frozen due to below freezing temperature.

Similarly, the historic 86-km-long Mughal road connecting Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch and Anantnag-Kishtwar road remained closed due to accumulation of snow for the past two months.

These roads are likely to reopen in March-April.

Bhopal, Feb 19 (UNI) Law-enforcement authorities of the future will be equipped with technology instead of weapons, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath averred on Wednesday while emphasising that the force shall have to familiarise itself with the latest techs and learn to adopt the same.
“My dispensation will extend all possible support to personnel in this direction. I hope that in future the Madhya Pradesh Police shall become so skilful vis-a-vis utilising emerging applied science that it would be an ideal for other states.
