A fresh landslide hit the road this morning while the debris clearance operation of earlier landslides was still going on, a traffic police official said. He said that no traffic will be allowed on the highway till it is absolutely safe.
Closure of the highway has resulted in shortages of essential supplies in the valley
Over 100 stranded tankers carrying petroleum products for the Kashmir Valley crossed the Jawahar Tunnel late on Friday.
Nearly 3,000 vehicles, mostly trucks, have been parked at safer places in Qazigund-Banihal stretch of the highway.
