Jammu:  One-way traffic was allowed on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Saturday and only stranded vehicles are moving from Jammu to Srinagar, a traffic official said.

Around 7,000 vehicles stranded in the Kashmir Valley would only be allowed to move towards the Jammu region after the highway was completely decongested, the official added, hoping the process might get smoother by later in the day.

The strategic 300-km long national highway that links the landlocked valley to other regions was restored on Friday afternoon for traffic.

“We will take a call on allowing traffic from Srinagar to Jammu only when all the stranded vehicles were cleared,” said the Traffic Department.

Over 2,000 stranded vehicles crossed the Jawahar Tunnel till Saturday morning to reach the Kashmir Valley.

Nearly 1,000 of these were carrying essential supplies for the valley folks, who have faced acute shortage of meat, poultry, and petroleum products when the road-link was severed due to scattered avalanches and landslides in the area between February 6 and 12.
