Srinagar Jammu National Highway partially restored for traffic
SSP Ramban Mohita Sharma Garg, while updating the status of the road, tweeted, “Single-way road through for the entire NH stretch of district Ramban, restoration work now ongoing to restore two-way traffic.”
Monsoon rain that lashed the area on Wednesday and Thursday morning triggered land and mudslides at various places between the Chanderkote and Ramsu sectors of the highway and shooting stones at Mehad and Panthyal thus forcing authorities to stop vehicles on both sides of the highway.
Traffic officials said, “Earlier on Wednesday morning, following a brief heavy spell of rain, the road was blocked at several places between Chanderkote and Ramsu in Ramban district. However, the road was restored and scheduled traffic was resumed on the highway.”
