Srinagar, July 21: After opening briefly for stranded vehicles, the Jammu-Srinagar National highway has been closed for vehicular traffic again on Thursday due to landslides and shooting stones.

"Mughal road and SSG road through for vehicular movement, however Jammu -Srinagar NHW (NH-44) still blocked," Jammu and Kashmir Traffic police said.

The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was shut for hours on Wednesday due to landslides, but was opened in the afternoon.
