The nearly 300-km long Srinagar- Jammu national highway, connecting Kashmir Valley with the rest of the country, was thrown open for one-way traffic, three days after heavy snowfall led to its closure on Monday.
"Traffic has been allowed to ply on the national highway after the road was cleared off snow yesterday," an official of the Traffic Department here said.
He said only one-way traffic was allowed to ply on the highway today.
"While the stranded vehicles were cleared yesterday, this morning, one-way traffic from Jammu was allowed to ply," the official said.
Meanwhile, there was slight snowfall and rain across Kashmir during the night and the minimum temperature at most places in the Valley went down.
Srinagar, the summer capital of the state, recorded a minimum of minus 3.3 degrees Celsius compared to the previous night's minus 2.5 degrees Celsius, an official of the Meteorological Department said here.
