Srinagar: One-way traffic was restored on Srinagat-Jammu highway, the only surface link connecting Kashmir valley with the outside world, after remaining closed throughout the night and several hours on Tuesday morning.

A traffic police official told GNS that the single-way traffic was restored after clearance of the debris. “Firstly stranded vehicles will be cleared,” he said and urged commuters to “travel with caution.”

Intermittent shooting stones at Mehar-Cafeteria area in Ramban on the highway led to the closure of the highway throughout the night and till around 10 am, he said.

Mohita Sharma, SSP traffic highway, said that the authorities were clearing stranded vehicles on priority as the thoroughfare remained blocked for the entire night due to shooting stones. “LMVs from Qazigund and Udhampur to follow soon,” she said.
