STATE TIMES NEWS
Banihal: Authorities on Tuesday suspended traffic along the strategic Jammu-Srinagar national highway to undertake repair works at several places in Ramban district, officials said. Repairs were necessitated after snowfall and heavy rains last Thursday rendered the arterial road severely damaged at several places between Nashri and Banihal, the officials said. They said several earth movers were pressed into the service by the agencies concerned at the affected portions, including Kishtwari Pather, Sher Bibi, Nachlana, Hingni, Shalgadi, Mehar, Cafeteria Morh and Dalwas, where the rain-triggered landslides had reduced the road to single lane.
