Ramban: The Srinagar-Jammu National Highway remained open for two-way traffic of Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) and one-way traffic of Heavy Motor Vehicles (HMVs) for Srinagar on Monday.
Traffic authorities said that during the last 24 hours up to 5 pm on Monday, the highway remained blocked for 3 hours and 45 minutes due to the closure of the Banihal-Qazigund Tunnel.
