Srinagar-Leh highway reopens after 4 months

Srinagar: After remaining closed for more than four months, Srinagar-Leh highway was thrown open for vehicular traffic on Friday.

However, an official said only light motor vehicles were allowed to move on the highway ahead of Sonamarg.

“Authorities will decide about the movement of the heavy vehicles on the highway later,” he added.

The highway was closed for vehicular traffic in mid-January this year after the high altitude areas of Kashmir, including Sonamarg and Zojila, received heavy snowfall.

The 10 km Gagangeer-Sonamarg road stretch of the highway was thrown open on March 2.
