Stranded light-motor vehicles (LMVs) and fuel tankers were allowed to move towards Kashmir valley on Tuesday after the debris of landslides was cleared from the strategic road.

“Over one hundred stranded fuel tankers and light passenger vehicles were allowed after seven days from Ramban to Kashmir,” said DSPT NHW Ramban Suresh Sharma.

An official said the road was made motorable for one-way traffic at the affected places.

He said the traffic was allowed to move despite shooting stones sliding down the mountains at Maroog and Pantiyal.

The road, only surface link between Kashmir and the Indian plains, remained closed during past seven days due to snowfall and landslides.

The closure of the road has created a shortage of essentials in Kashmir valley.
