“Restoration work is in progress on NH-44. Commuters are advised to avoid journey till the road is fully restored,” the J&K Traffic Police said in a post on X.

It is pertinent to mention that the restoration works to reopen the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway were taken immediately after landslides occurred on the NH-44 but the works were hindered by the incessant rains and shooting stones.

With the let-up in rainfall, traffic officials are expecting the NH-44 to be restored for traffic after expediting the road clearance works.
