Sgr-Jmu Highway reopens
Jammu, Aug 8: The 300-Km Srinagar-Jammu Highway, was reopened for traffic today after a day long closure due to landslides triggered by heavy rains in Ramban district.
The Highway was reopened after clearance of landslide at Digdol and Panthal, a police official said.
Over 1,000 vehicles, which were stranded at various places in Udhampur, Nagrota, Ramban, Patnitop, Banihal and Batote areas of the Highway due to the landslide, were allowed to move, he added.
However, there was traffic jam on the Highway at various places due to slow movement of the vehicles as a result of heavy rains today.
Heavy rains lashed the entire Jammu region since early this morning, bringing much relief from the high degree of humidity.
