Heavy traffic jam on Jammu-Srinagar highway near Banihal

Hundreds of vehicles were left stranded on Srinagar-Jammu highway today due to a traffic jam between Ramsoo and Banihal.
Instead of one way, the vehicular movement from the either sides was allowed by the authorities, commuters said.

Eyewitness told that hundreds of vehicles were stranded on the road near Ransoo since last 3 hours.

The commuters complained that the mess was created by traffic department, after officials allowed vehicles from Jammu and other locations towards Banihal and valley.

Pertinently, the traffic department had announced that the vehicles coming from Srinagar to Jammu will be allowed to play on the highway today.

However, the vehicles from the either sides were allowed to ply on the highway, thus creating traffic mess, which resulted in hardships to the passengers.
