Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir: Jammu-Srinagar National Highway and Mughal Road Blocked by Landslides,  Alert from J-K Police

The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway (NH-44) has encountered blockages caused by landslides, and it is strongly advised to avoid its usage, as confirmed by the police on Saturday.

In a tweet, Jammu and Kashmir Traffic Police reported, "Both NH-44 and Mughal Road are currently obstructed due to two landslides. We urge people not to travel until the clearance operations are completed."

The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, spanning 250 kilometers, serves as the sole all-weather road connecting Kashmir to the rest of the country. Additionally, the historical Mughal Road links Bufliaz town in the Jammu region's Poonch district to the Shopian district of Kashmir, stretching across 84 kilometers over the Pir Panjal Pass—a route once utilized during the Mughal era.

Furthermore, the Srinagar-Sonamarg-Gumri (SSG) double-lane road acts as a vital connection between the Ladakh region and Jammu and Kashmir.

Notably, the NH-44 experienced blockages last month due to numerous landslides and falling stones from the hillock at Cafeteria Morh and Mehar in Ramban town.
