Fresh landslides block Jammu-Srinagar highway

Traffic movement disrupted on Kashmir highway after landslide

Fresh landslides in Ramban district on Wednesday blocked the Jammu-Srinagar highway, the traffic department said.

The fresh landslides and shooting stones in Pantiyal forced traffic on the highway to be stopped, traffic officials said.

“Clearance operation is going on. Travelers are advised not to undertake journey before contacting our control rooms in Jammu and Srinagar,” an official added.

The Ramban-Ramsoo road stretch has been posing serious challenges to the authorities as landslides and shooting stones in this sector have caused frequent blockades creating shortages of essentials in the landlocked Kashmir Valley.
