Fresh landslides shut Srinagar-Jammu highway again

Srinagar/Nov,5: Landslides in Ramban district Monday morning closed the Srinagar-Jammu highway after the traffic was restored for one-way traffic less than a day ago. .

A traffic police official said ” though traffic was restored from Jammmu to Srinagar Sunday evening and was scheduled to open for those travelling from Srinagar to Jammu but after fresh landslides at Digdol near Ramban the road was closed for traffic again” he said.

The closure of the vital road would harm the apple business as the untimely snowfall has caused damage to the orchards in the valley and majority of trucks moving from Srinagar to Jammu carry apples for sale in the terminal markets.

Delay in delivery due to the landslides was likely to cause huge losses to the Jammu and Kashmir Horticulture industry.
