Srinagar: The Srinagar-Jammu highway is open for one-way traffic today with vehicles from Srinagar allowed to move towards Jammu for the second consecutive day on Monday.

“No vehicle will be allowed from the opposite direction for the second day today,” a traffic police official said this morning.


He said Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) will have to cross Zig Qazigund in south Kashmir between 1000 hrs to 1300 hrs and Heavy Motor Vehicles (HMVs) from 1600 hrs. No vehicle will be allowed after cut off timing, he said.

He said the weight bearing capacity of bailey bridge installed at Kela Morh Ramban, where main concrete bridge was damaged on January 10, is only 40 metric tons. Vehicles carrying less than 40 tone weight are allowed to cross over the bailey bridge, he said.

He said that security forces are also advised to ply from Srinagar to Jammu as per travel schedule.
