The strategic Jammu-Srinagar national highway will allow heavy vehicular traffic only from Srinagar to Jammu on Wednesday. Officials said the decision was taken in view of the road widening work going on at some places on the stretch.

“Keeping the condition of the road in consideration, as it has narrowed down at a number of places because of the widening process going on, especially in the Ramban district, no heavy vehicle will be allowed to move from Jammu to Srinagar today (Wednesday),” said a statement from the traffic department.

Light motor vehicles will be allowed to move from both sides.

The weather along the highway being cloudy, officials said those planning to undertake a travel should contact the traffic police control rooms to find out the latest status of the highway.

The nearly 300 km-long highway is the lifeline of supplies for the landlocked Kashmir valley and the Ladakh region.
