Traffic on Kashmir highway disrupted due to landslides, Mughal road closed

Traffic on the national highway, connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country, has been restored after disruption due to landslides on Tuesday evening while historic Mughal road remained closed due to accumulation of snow and slippery road condition.

The national highway, linking the Ladakh region with Kashmir remained closed while one-way traffic will continue on the road between Bandipora to border town of Gurez, surrounded by Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).

Traffic on 300-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway was suspended on Tuesday evening due to fresh landslides at Peerha under police station Chanderkote.
However, the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), responsible for the maintainance of the highway immediately put in service sophisticated machines and men and cleared all landslides.
Traffic was later restored after several hours.
