Like other parts of the State, it has been raining throughout the day almost all along the Srinagar-Jammu NHW. However, the concerned road maintenance agencies despite all odds remained busy in clearing-off the road to make it worthy for movement of vehicular traffic. Though the the land slides have been cleared to a large extent, yet due to uneven weather condition and rainfall, occurring of land slides/ shooting stones at vulnerable places of NHW is still looming large.
However, subject to fair weather/ good condition of road and clearance from Traffic Control Units, tomorrow on 12.03.2017 movement of traffic shall be allowed from Jammu towards Srinagar side in a regulated manner. The movement of LMVs/passenger vehicles shall be allowed from Nagrota, Jammu from 0700 hours to 1000 hours and from Udhampur up to 1100 hours only. This shall be followed by the movement of HMVs/load carriers (excluding trailers/multi-axle vehicles) only if weather/road condition permits.
No movement of traffic including that of convoys of Army, BSF, CRPF etc. shall be allowed from Srinagar towards Jammu side on 12.03.2017 under any circumstances to ensure hassle free movement of traffic.
Commuters are requested/advised that vehicles are not parked in any landslide/avalanche/vulnerable zones of NHW especially from Ramsoo – Jawahar Tunnel – Levdora under any circumstances.
