Mughal road thrown open for traffic

May 3. The arterial road communication is closed in the winter due to heavy snowfall and used to get reopened in the last week of May every year.

“It was strictly in compliance to the instructions of Chief Minister Mufti Syed that we ensured re-opening of this road one month earlier to its scheduled time frame while efforts are on to open the road for two-way traffic within two weeks,” said Minister for Public Works, Floriculture and Gardens & Parks Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari. He said the vehicular movement will give a sigh of relief to the locals particularly the traders’ community of both the regions. He added that this road not only gives a flip to economic activity but has a significant social impact in all the areas that are connected by this vital road link.

while giving details of the traffic movement on the road said that traffic will be allowed strictly from 10 PM to 04:00 PM in view of frost conditions and shooting stones in higher reaches of the road. He said on May 03, 04, 06, 08 and 11 May, the traffic will ply from Jammu to Srinagar while on May 05, 07, 10 and 12, the traffic will be allowed to ply from Srinagar to Jammu.  “There will be no traffic movement on May 9 to allow the department to carry out necessary maintenance of the road”, he added.

The Chief Engineer said that the snow clearance and removing landslides is in progress to make the road motorable for two-way traffic.
