No traffic on Highway today
Srinagar: While the Jammu-Srinagar highway remained closed, officials on Monday said that the thoroughfare, the only road link connecting Kashmir Valley with the outside world, shall be closed for traffic today as well due to the accumulation of snow around Jawahar Tunnel.
“On January 5, no vehicular movement shall be allowed on Jammu-Srinagar Highway from Jammu towards Srinagar and vice-versa in view of the snow accumulation around the Jawahar Tunnel and inclement weather prediction issued by the MeT department in J&K for next few days,” a traffic department official said.
He said that the Mughal road, connecting Shopian and Poonch districts, also remained closed.
Srinagar-Leh highway has been officially closed on the orders by Divisional Commissioner Kashmir on December 30.
