Jammu Srinagar Highway Traffic Update 02.04.2017
The narrow width of NHW at Mehar, Panthyal and Ramsoo coupled with overall condition of the NHW form Zig-Jawahar Tunnel and Ramban-Jawahar Tunnel gives tough time to the Traffic Police in regulation of traffic. The width of the road at the above said locations is narrow and therefore not feasible for two-way traffic.
In view of the above and subject to fair weather/ good condition of road and clearance from Traffic Control Units, only one way movement of traffic shall be allowed on NHW on 02.04.2017. Under the said plan, movement of traffic shall be allowed from Jammu towards Srinagar side in a regulated manner. Movement of LMVs/passenger vehicles/Tankers shall be allowed from Nagrota (Jammu) up to 0700 hours only and all these vehicles shall cross Udhampur up to 0800 hours positively. The movement of HMVs (excluding Trailers/multi-axle vehicles) shall be allowed from Nagrota (Jammu) up to 0500 hours only and from Udhampur up to 0600 hours only. Strict implementation of prescribed cut off timings shall be ensured to avoid congestion/jamming on the NHW.
No movement of any sort of traffic shall be allowed from Srinagar towards Jammu side on 02.04.2017 under any circumstances to ensure smooth flow of traffic on the NHW.
Commuters are requested/advised that vehicles are not parked in any landslide/vulnerable zones of NHW especially from Ramsoo – Jawahar Tunnel – Levdora under any circumstances. All the vulnerable/slide prone zones should be kept free from any kind of traffic to avoid any eventuality.
