Banihal/Jammu, July 29

Vehicular traffic on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway resumed on Friday after blockades caused by shooting stones and mudslides in Ramban district were cleared, officials said.

“Jammu-Srinagar highway is through. Many stretches are still single way open for traffic and intermittent shooting stones are still going on,” a traffic advisory said.

It said stranded vehicles were being cleared and people are advised not to travel on the highway without confirmation from the traffic police.

Convoys of Amarnath pilgrims from Jammu have been allowed to move towards Kashmir valley, officials said.

The important iron tunnel passage set up in the most vulnerable stretch of the highway was damaged due to intense shooting stones on Thursday evening.
