Jammu:

Traffic on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway resumed on Wednesday after it was suspended for nearly 12 hours due to the blocking of the road by huge boulders near Banihal, officials said.

Huge boulders came rolling down and blocked the highway at Rattanbas in Banihal area on Tuesday night, forcing suspension of the traffic, a spokesman for the traffic department said.

The clearance operation started early morning on Wednesday and the highway was made traffic-worthy by 9.30 am.

Light motor vehicles from both sides are plying on the road, the spokesman said.

However, heavy vehicles would be allowed from Srinagar to Jammu only due to road-widening work at various places along the highway.
