Srinagar: Traffic on the national highway, linking the Kashmir Valley with the rest of the country, was restored after disruption for several hours on Saturday due to fresh landslides.
Meanwhile, the national highway, connecting Ladakh region with Kashmir and historic Mughal and dozens of other roads, including those leading to far flung and remote villages near Line of Control (LoC) remained closed.
A traffic police official told UNI that traffic on the 300-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway was suspended following fresh landslides at Battery Cheshma.
However, the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) immediately put into service sophisticated machines and men and cleared the landslides.
Traffic has been restored on the highway, he said adding light vehicles are plying from both Srinagar and Jammu sides.
