SSP Traffic National Highway, Sanjay Kotwal Wednesday said that traffic was restored on highway Wednesday afternoon. Kotwal told KNS that traffic on highway, which was suspended due to the landslides at various places across highway, was restored around Thursday afternoon. He said that authorities had to suspend the traffic movement on highway as roads were damaged at certain places caused by the landslides due to the incessant rains on Tuesday. He informed that men and machinery were put into service to restore traffic on the highway which was finally thrown open on Wednesday afternoon. “There were around 2000 Srinagar bound vehicles stranded on the highway which were allowed to move after traffic movement was restored across highway,” he added.
