Hundreds of vehicles, mostly trucks loaded with essentials and oil tankers, remained stranded for the third consecutive day on Thursday following the closure of the 270-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway due to landslides and shooting stones, triggered by heavy rains.
However, the 434-km-long national highway, linking the Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh with Kashmir and historic 86-km-long Mughal road are through for one-way traffic despite the rain.
The Srinagar-Jammu national highway, the only all-weather road connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country, remained shut for the third day today due to landslides and shooting stone at several places, a traffic police official told today.
