Srinagar-Leh road to reopen soon, no traffic on Kashmir highway on Friday

Srinagar, Feb 19 (UNI) Traffic on the National Highway, the only road connecting Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh with Kashmir valley, is likely to resume soon as snow clearance operation at Zojila pass is almost completed while the 270-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway will remain closed on Friday for weekly maintenance and repair work.
Meanwhile, the 86-km-long historic Mughal road, linking Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu region remained closed since December last year due to accumulation of snow, particularly at Pir-ki-Gali.
However, massive snow clearance operation was going on Anantnag-Kishtwar road which is likely to reopen for traffic about a month earlier this time.
