Srinagar: The Jammu-Srinagar highway, the only surface link connecting Kashmir valley with the outside world, shall remain open for stranded vehicles on the thoroughfare on Tuesday, officials said.
“In view of inclement weather prediction issued by the MeT department for the next few days, there are chances of blockade of the highway. Peoples are advised to avoid journeys on the thoroughfare,” the traffic authorities said.
However, the officials said that subject to fair weather and better road condition, “only stranded vehicles between Udhampur and Nashree shall be allowed towards Srinagar.”
The officials asked security forces not to ply against advisory and traffic plan in view of traffic congestion on the highway. “They may ply from Jammu towards Srinagar after confirming the status of highway,” the official said.
Meanwhile, Mughal road, connecting Shopian and Poonch districts, remained closed due to the snow accumulation.
