Traffic authorities said that the movement of traffic remained slow due to the breakdown of a heavy vehicle inside the Chenani-Nashri tunnel and due to single road, poor surface conditions at Dalwass, Mehar-Cafeteria, Ramban, Panthyal Magarkote, Shalgari, Nachlana, and other places between Nashri and Banihal.
