Srinagar: One-way traffic was allowed on Kashmir highway on Monday.
Around 300 oil tankers stranded at Patnitop have been allowed to move from Jammu to Srinagar, a traffic department official said.
“Once the oil tankers cross the Jawahar Tunnel, heavy vehicular traffic will be allowed from Srinagar to Jammu”, the official said.
Trucks and tankers carrying petroleum products have to take the Kud-Patnitop-Batote stretch of the highway as no vehicle carrying inflammatory material is allowed to pass through the Chenani-Nashri tunnel that by-passes the old Kud-Patnitop-Batote stretch of the highway.(Agencies).
