Traffic officials monitoring the regulation of traffic in Ramban said that the 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, Mehar Cafeteria, Panthyal, Nachlana Gangroo, Shalgari, and Kishtwari Pathar and poor road surface conditions at many places besides breakdown of seven heavy vehicles between Nashri and Banihal sectors.
