SRINAGAR, Mar 17: Though the valley witnessed extremely harsh winter season this year, the return of pleasant weather has symbolised the arrival of spring in Kashmir.

Meanwhile, one way traffic continued on Srinagar Jammu national highway on Friday.

The officials revealed that the road repairing was being carried out however it would take time to restore the highway properly owing to damaged road conditions at several places.

"One way vehicular traffic was allowed to ply from Jammu towards Srinagar today. The condition of the road is extremely bad at the places where landslides occurred. The road was completely washed away near Ramsoo and Mehar areas due to landslides and snow. The authorities are making efforts to restore the condition of the highway," an official at traffic control room said.

The 300 km long national highway was shut for vehicular traffic continuously during the last two months owing to landslides and snow at several places along the stretch.

While the closure of the road had pushed the stranded passengers to huge trouble valley witnessed shortage of many essentials due to blockade of highway.

"The BRO men and machinery are working ruthlessly to restore the highway. The road is extremely damaged and narrow therefore it might take some more time," an official said.
