Traffic officials said that the highway, remained open. However, they said vehicular traffic movement remained slow due to the breakdown of a few heavy vehicles, on-foot movement of nomad families with their livestock and due to single-lane road stretches at Dalwass, Mehar  Cafeteria, Panthyal, Magarkote, Shalgari, Gangroo, and  Nachlana besides poor road surface conditions at many places between Nashri and Banihal.
