SRINAGAR – The strategic Srinagar-Jammu highway remained closed for the sec­ond consecutive day Satur­day leaving as many as 2500 heavy motor vehicles strand­ed, traffic officials said.

The vital road link connect­ing Kashmir with rest of the country was closed for vehicu­lar traffic for the second day to­day in wake of the slippery road conditions around Jawahar tun­nel, the officials said. They said movement of vehicles was also suspended in Banihal-Qazi­gund section as well.

“Efforts are on to clear the snow from the highway and as soon it becomes opera­tional, stranded vehicles on the 264-km long road will be cleared first,” the official said.
