The Jammu-Srinagar national highway was closed for traffic after a portion of the road caved in near Ramban town, officials said on Monday, adding that the repair work would take at least five days.

A portion of the road near Kela Morh, 4 km ahead of the Ramban district headquarters, sank after a concrete retaining wall of the bridge collapsed, leading to the sinking of the road on Sunday evening, the officials said.

“The construction company concerned has started the restoration work on the damaged portion of the road but it will take at least five days to complete the work,” SSP (Traffic), National Highway, Jatinder Singh Jowhar said.

The highway was opened for traffic only on Sunday. —PTI
