The strategic Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was closed for traffic on Thursday following a major landslide in Ramban district, leaving more than 300 vehicles stranded.
The 270-km highway, the only all-weather road linking Kashmir with rest of the country, was blocked by a landslide at Shalgari area in Ramban district, officials said.
“Over 300 vehicles are stranded at different points of the highway,” an official told PTI.
Workers have been deployed to clear the area, but incessant rain along the Ramban-Banihal sector was proving to be an impediment, an official said. People have been advised not to travel on the highway without confirmation from the traffic control units, they added.
