Civil traffic resumes on Kashmir highway, one-way traffic on Leh, Mughal roads
5/2/2019 12:03:29 PM

Srinagar, May 2 Civilian traffic resumed on Thursday on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway after remaining suspended for a day due to ban imposed by the administration to allow free and secure movement of security force convoy.
One-way traffic will ply on the national highway, the only road linking the Ladakh region with Kashmir and historic 86-km-long Mughal road on Thursday.
The administration has imposed ban on civilian traffic twice in a week on Sunday and Wednesday to allow only security force convoy to ply on highway, the only all weather road connecting Kashmir with the rest of the country.
However, from today, the administration has lifted ban on civilian traffic on these days between Srinagar and Baramulla. It has also been announced to review ban on civilian traffic movement on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway after election process is over in the valley.
Yesterday, only security force convoy was allowed to ply on the Kashmir highway due to ban, a traffic police official said.
Today, civilian traffic was resumed and vehicles will ply from Srinagar to Jammu, he added. No vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction, he said.
He said, Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) will have to cross Levdora between 1000 hrs to 1300 hrs. Later, he said, Heavy Motor Vehicles (HMVs) will be allowed from 1300 hrs from Qazigund towards Jammu. No vehicle will be allowed after the deadline, he said.
Only one-way LMV traffic will continue to ply on the Srinagar-Leh National Highway, he said adding today, vehicles will ply Minimarg in Ladakh region to Sonamarg in central Kashmir. Vehicles will be allowed to leave Minimarg on the other side of the Zojila pass between 0700 hrs to 1000 hrs, he said adding no vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction or after the deadline.
Traffic will ply from Rajouri and Poonch to Shopian in central Kashmir on Mughal road for the second day on Thursday, traffic police official said. The road was reopened only yesterday after remaining closed for five winter months due to accumulation of snow. As large number of Kashmir-bound vehicles could not cross the Pir-ki-Gali yesterday due to heavy rush, stranded vehicles were being cleared today also. He said traffic on this road is allowed between 0500 hrs to 1500 hrs only.
