They said, “After repair works, the highway remained open for two-way traffic of passenger Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) and one-way traffic of heavy vehicles. After clearing scheduled LMVs and heavy vehicles for Jammu, heavy vehicles, carrying essential supplies, were also allowed to move towards Kashmir from Udhampur in a regulated manner on Friday evening.”

Official sources said that the highway remained open for one-way traffic but the movement of traffic remained slow due to the narrow carriageway at the mud and landslide-affected Dalwass area of Nashri, near the Chenani-Nashri tunnel and due to the breakdown of two heavy vehicles.

The officials monitoring the regulation of traffic on the highway in Ramban said, “Due to single-lane at Dalwass, Mehar-Cafeteria, Panthyal, Hingni, Gangroo, Nachlana, Kishtwari Pathar and poor road surface conditions at several places between Nashri and Banihal sectors, traffic movement remained slow on the highway throughout the day.”
