Traffic suspended on Srinagar-Leh road due to landslides

The Srinagar-Leh highway was on Friday closed for vehicular traffic due to landslides, triggered by rain, at a few places.

Traffic has been suspended on the highway again due to fresh landslides at different places near Zojila pass this morning, a traffic police official said.

He said the Border Roads Organisation, responsible for the maintenance of the highway, have already put into service sophisticated machines and men to put through the traffic.

However, he said traffic on the highway would be restored only after receiving green signal from the BRO and traffic police officials posted in the area where landslides had occurred.
