JAMMU: The strategic Jammu-Srinagar national highway was restored on Monday for one-way traffic after remaining closed for four days.

"One-way traffic will be allowed on Jammu-Srinagar national highway," a senior traffic department official told IANS here.

"Traffic will be allowed from Jammu to Srinagar. Only light vehicles will be allowed to move on the highway."

Incessant rains in the region's Ramban district had triggered landslides forcing the closure of the over 300-km-long road.

As weather showed signs of improvement on Sunday evening, landslides were cleared at Sher Bibi, Panthal, Nasri and other places to make the highway traffic worthy.

Due to the four-day long closure of the road, mutton, poultry products, vegetables have already run into short supply in the Valley.
