Traffic officials monitoring the regulation of traffic in Ramban said that the National Highway remained open but the traffic movement remained slow due to on foot movement of nomads and their livestock, slippery road conditions and single lane carriageway at Dalwass, Mehad –Cafeteria, Panthyal Nachlana, Gangroo, Shalgari, Kishtwari Pathar and poor road surface conditions at many places between Nashri-Banihal sectors.
