Ramban, Apr 2: The Srinagar-Jammu National Highway remained open for two-way traffic of Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) and heavy vehicles but the traffic movement remained slow due to narrow road stretches at many places between Nashri and Banihal sectors on Tuesday.

The officials monitoring the regulation of traffic in Ramban said, “The traffic movement remained slow due to the breakdown of few heavy vehicles, single lane carriageway at Dalwass, Mehar-Cafeteria, Panthyal, Kishtwari-Pathar, Nachlana and Shalgari and due to poor road surface conditions at many places between Nashri-Banihal sectors.”

They said despite slow traffic movement, hundreds of LMVs and heavy vehicles crossed the Nashri-Banihal sector for their respective destinations without any disruption till late Tuesday evening.
“Heavy load carriers are heading towards Kashmir and Jammu in a regulated manner,” they said.

Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Traffic Police Department issued a fresh advisory for Wednesday stating that subject to fair weather and road clearance, LMVs would be allowed to ply on either side.
