On Saturday, traffic moved again at Dalwass near Nashri on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway after being stopped for eight hours for drilling and road repair work.

Officials in charge of traffic said that vehicles could drive on the highway again after the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) finished planned repair work at Dalwass on Saturday morning.


They said that a land slide at Dalwass Nashri stopped the highway again after it had been open for a short time.

They said that NHAI workers and machines at Dalwass cleaned up the fall and rubble, and that part of the highway was open again by Saturday morning.

But traffic moved slowly at Dalwass, Cafeteria Mehar, Ramban, Seri, and other places because the roads between Nashri and Banihal only had one lane each way.

The Deputy Commissioner (DC) of Ramban, Mussarat Islam, wrote on social media that the highway had been partly fixed and that traffic was moving in a controlled way.

People have been told to stay in their lanes.

Officials who watch over traffic on the highway in Ramban said that two-way traffic was back to normal on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway after the stuck cars were moved.

The J&K Traffic Department also released a new traffic warning for Sunday. It said that light, medium, and heavy cars would be allowed to drive on either side of the highway as long as the weather was good and the roads were in good shape.
