Traffic authorities said that during the last 24 hours up to 5 pm on Sunday, the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway remained blocked for 2 hours and 20 minutes due to slide clearance at Chamba Seri and the closure of Banihal-Qazigund Tunnel.

Meanwhile, J&K Traffic Department issued a fresh advisory for Monday stating that subject to fair weather and road clearance, LMVs would be allowed to move on either side of the highway while HMVs would be allowed from Qazigund, Kashmir via Banihal-Qazigund Tunnel towards Jammu after assessing the road and traffic situation on the highway.

The Traffic Control Unit (TCU) Srinagar has been asked to liaise with TCU Ramban before releasing the HMVs on Monday.
