Srinagar-Leh national highway reopens
"Vehicular traffic on the Srinagar-Leh National Highway has been restored after clearing the debris of landslides due to cloud burst between Sonamarg and Zojila on August 22," a spokesman of the Traffic Department said.
The stranded vehicles were cleared from both Gumri and Sonamarg side before other vehicles were allowed this morning, the spokesman said.
The 434-kilometre arterial road connecting Leh to the rest of the state is vulnerable to landslides and shooting stones as the highway passes through treacherous mountains.
