Jammu-Srinagar Highway Opened Partially

Please follow and like us:

On Friday, Due to Bottlenecks at many places, one-way traffic was allowed to move on the Jammu-Srinagar Highway.

A traffic department official said the traffic was allowed to move from Srinagar to Jammu.

The official added, “No traffic movement will be permitted from the opposite direction. This restriction will also apply to Army and paramilitary convoys using the highway”.

For the last 10 days after the over 300-km long highway was restored for traffic, authorities have been allowing only one-way traffic alternately between the two cities. There has been a severe narrowing of the highway at a number of places especially in the Ramban district during this winter, the official added.

The main reason cited was Landslide debris and caving- in of the road.

On the other hand, after completion of its successful test run, authorities have closed the Nashri Chenani tunnel for its formal inauguration by PM Narendra Modi on April 2nd.

Built at a cost of Rs. 7,350 crore, the state-of-the-art tunnel has facilities for allowing mobile phones connectivity and others while passing through it.

It has special vents to keep the air inside fresh and smoke-free.

The tunnel is said to save 2 hours of travel time between Jammu and Srinagar as it bypasses the 41 km long Nashri-Patnitop-Kund Stretch of the road.
