Srinagar- The Jammu-Srinagar national highway was closed for traffic on Tuesday due to the falling of stones from hilltops in Ramban district following incessant rainfall, traffic officials said.

They advised people not to travel on the highway without confirming the status of the road from traffic checking units.

“Jammu-Srinagar highway was blocked due to continuous shooting stones at Panthyal,” an official said.

Incessant rains continued in many parts of Jammu and Kashmir, including Ramban and Udhampur districts, causing a threat of more landslides on the highway, the officials said.

Men and machinery have been deployed to clear the highway of the debris but shooting stones are acting as a hindrance, they said.

Meanwhile, Mughal road was closed due to a landslide at Poshana.

“Commuters are advised not to travel on Mughal road without confirming the status of road from TCU Jammu/Srinagar,” the official said.
