Srinagar, Sep 25: Traffic resumed on Saturday on the national highway, the only road connecting the Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh with the Kashmir valley.

Traffic was allowed on both sides of the highway after remaining suspended on Friday for weekly maintenance and repair at Zojila pass, a traffic police official told UNI this morning.

He said Kashmir bound vehicles will be allowed in the morning from 0600 hrs till 1100 hrs. Later Ladakh bound vehicles from Sonamarg, in central Kashmir, he added.

The UT of Ladakh and J&K administration had agreed to suspend traffic on the highway every Friday to allow Beacon authorities to undertake weekly maintenance at Zojila axis, which remained closed during winter months due to accumulation of heavy snow and avalanches.
