Early Times Report
Srinagar, Feb 14: The arterial Srinagar-Jammu national highway was shut for the third consecutive day today due to landslides, even as dry weather prevailed in Kashmir where the mercury settled below the freezing point at most places.
The 270-km highway was briefly re-opened for traffic on Tuesday after two days, but was closed again due to landslips.
Officials sources said that land slides triggered at many places on the highway which creates hurdles for the restoration of traffic on highway. They said that yesterday a land slide came down near Battery Chasma Ankohifall sector which was cleared at about 3: 00 pm on Wednesday but a fresh slide came down near Marog some five kilometers a head of Ramban town.
They more said that one more slide came down near kheeri Udhumpur and the slide cleaning work is on to restore the traffic. They said that maintanance agencies are working hard to clear these slides from the road.
Many passangers and students who were going for UPSC and for other exams and interviews crossed slide areas by foot to reach winter capital.
More than two hundred stranded trucks and about 60 LMV vehicles vehicles was allowed yesterday from Ramban Banihal towards Valley after clearance of snow across Jawhar tunnel. Latter the fresh slides again blocked the highway and the restoration work on road was on when reports last came in.
It is pertinent to mention that the construction work on fourlane project is in progress where the slides came down on highway. Passangers said that the cutting work on hill side cracked the hill cocks and after the rain slides came down.
"Clearance work is underway. A decision on allowing the movement of traffic on the highway will be taken only after the road is cleared off by the road maintenance agency," the official said.
