The officials, monitoring the regulation of traffic in Ramban, said, “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.”

“Despite slow traffic movement, hundreds of LMvs crossed the Nashri-Banihal sector on the highway for their respective destinations without any disruption till late this evening. Heavy load carriers are still heading towards Kashmir in a regulated manner,” they said.

Meanwhile, traffic authorities issued a fresh advisory for Wednesday stating that subject to fair weather and good road conditions, LMVs, including passenger vehicles, would be allowed to ply on both sides of the highway.
