Traffic restored on Jammu-Srinagar Highway after landslide

A landslide Wednesday briefly blocked the Jammu-Srinagar Highway, a traffic department spokesman said.

The landslide took place around 3:15 am in Ramban district’s Rattanbas area, blocking the 300-km road’s Banihal stretch, he said.

The spokesman said that men and machines were immediately pressed into service and the highway was cleared for traffic by 6:30 am.

He said that as work at the site was still going on, movement of traffic on the stretch was slow.
