Srinagar: The strategic 434-kilometre Srinagar-Leh highway, the only road connecting the Ladakh region with the rest of Jammu and Kashmir, reopened on Friday.

Official sources said that traffic was allowed from Srinagar to Leh after remaining closed for around 80 days and was plying normally when this report was filed.

The decision to open the highway was taken at a meeting co-chaired by Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Pandurang K Pole and Divisional Commissioner Ladakh, Saugat Biswas earlier this week.
