Major stone-slide closes Jammu-Srinagar highway

Jammu-Srinagar highway, the only surface link connecting Kashmir Valley with the outside world, has been closed after a major stone-slide at near Dewal Bridge in Udhampur last night, officials said on Wednesday.

A traffic department official told GNS that the thoroughfare remains closed and efforts are underway to clear it.

Around midnight, the authorities had announced that the movement of all types of vehicles shall remain suspended in view of major stone-slide which has “damaged both tubes of highway road”.

Likewise, vehicular movement from Jammu to Chenani, Patnitop, Doda, Ramban, Gool, Banihal Srinagar and vice-versa has also been suspended.

Meanwhile, Mughal Road, connecting twin districts of Poonch and Rajouri with Shopian, as well as SSG road, was through for traffic movement, the official added. (GNS)
