Fresh snowfall closes Srinagar-Jammu highway

Srinagar: The Srinagar-Jammu highway remained closed due to fresh snowfall in the Bannihal sector of the over 300-kilometre road Saturday, an official here said.

Snowfall in the Bannihal sector and landslides in Seri area of Ramban district in the Jammu region have forced closure of the Srinagar-Jammu highway, a traffic official told.

“The highway has been closed for vehicular traffic today (Saturday). Those intending to undertake the journey are advised to contact the traffic control rooms in Srinagar and Jammu for an update on the highway status,” the official said.

The Srinagar-Jammu highway is the landlocked Valley’s only road link to the rest of the country. All essential supplies are routed to Kashmir through this highway.
