Traffic was on Saturday resumed on the national highway, the only road connecting Ladakh with Kashmir.
No vehicle was allowed from either side of the road on Srinagar-Leh national highway on Friday for weekly maintenance, a traffic police official said.
He said Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir had agreed to allow Beacon authorities to undertake weekly maintenance at Zojila pass every Friday.
”We allowed both way traffic on the highway today. Kashmir-bound vehicles plied in the morning from 6 am to 11 pm,” he said. “Later, vehicles will be allowed from Sonmarg in central Kashmir to Ladakh.”
The highway remains closed for winter months from 1 January every year due to heavy snowfall and avalanches.
Meanwhile, the administration has started sending stocks for winter to different parts of Ladakh. (Agencies)
