Srinagar, Nov 12 (UNI) Traffic was on Tuesday resumed on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway, the only all weather road connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country, after remaining suspended since Thursday due to snow and landslides, triggered by heavy rain.

The 86-km-long historic Mughal road, connecting Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu region remained closed due to accumulation of snow and slippery road condition for the seventh day on Tuesday.
