Accidents on Jammu-Srinagar Highway disrupt traffic

Jammu:The normal flow of traffic on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was affected on Saturday due to road accidents, officials said.

Traffic Department officials said three loaded trucks were involved in an accident after these had crossed the Chenani-Nashri tunnel. One accident occurred inside the tunnel, affecting movement of traffic.

“Senior officials reached the spot to help restore normal traffic flow,” the officials said in Jammu.

The highway was reopened three days ago as multiple landslides in Ramban district and heavy snowfall in Bannihal sector had earlier disrupted traffic movement.

In the last three days, authorities had allowed only one-way traffic on the highway due to bad road conditions.
