Landslide hits Jammu-Srinagar highway

Adding up to the traffic woes following a dozen landslides and continuous snowfall in January this year, the Jammu-Srinagar highway was again hit by a landslide early on Wednesday, a traffic official said, adding the incident occurred in the Ramban district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The landslide hit the highway at the Anokhi Fall, days after an earlier landslide at Panthal was cleared to ensure smooth passage of one-way traffic on the highway.

One-way traffic from Srinagar to Jammu will be allowed as soon as the landslide is cleared.

Commenting on the situation, the official said, "No traffic will be allowed in the opposite direction to avoid overcrowding.”

After remaining closed for six days, the strategic highway was restored for one-way traffic on Monday.
