Jammu-Srinagar highway restored: Over 1,400 trucks head for the valley

Jammu: The Jammu-Srinagar highway that was restored for one-way traffic has already allowed over 1,400 vehicles to cross the Jawahar Tunnel and reach the Kashmir Valley, a traffic official said on Wednesday.

The strategic highway was restored for one-way traffic on Tuesday after seven days following avalanches and lanslides.

Since Tuesday afternoon some 700 trucks carrying petroleum products, vegetables, poultry, mutton and other essentials crossed the Jawahar Tunnel to reach the valley

“Today also, we will be allowing the stranded traffic to move on the highway to decongest the road,” said the traffic official.

The severed link to the landlocked valley had caused serious shortages of essentials of life. Authorities were forced to order rationing of petroleum products.
