“Light vehicles have been allowed to move from both Jammu and Srinagar today (Monday) morning after earth and rocks were removed from the highway.
“Heavy vehicular traffic will be allowed on the highway after the situation is reviewed later in the day,” a senior official of the state traffic department told IANS in Jammu.
