They said, “Heavy vehicles would be allowed to ply towards Kashmir from Udhampur on Thursday.” However, they advised passenger vehicle operators and commuters not to undertake journeys on the highway during night hours due to apprehensions of shooting stones between Ramban and Banihal. They advised road users to prefer journeys during the daytime only.

Earlier, the officials monitoring the regulation  of traffic in Ramban said that the highway remained open but the traffic movement remained slow due to foot-movement of nomads and their livestock; slippery road conditions; single lane carriageway at Dalwass, Mehar-Cafeteria, Panthial, Nachlana, Gangroo, Shalgari, Kishtwari-Pathar and poor road surface conditions at many places between Nashri-Banihal sectors.
