The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway reopened for traffic on Monday after remaining closed for a day due to landslides.

The landslide has been fully cleared by the Border Roads Organization (BRO) and the traffic movement is smooth on the highway at Samroli, 78-km from Jammu in Udhampur district, traffic police officials said.

They added a dozer has been kept at the spot in eventuality of any landslide in the rainy season.

The traffic police had late last night managed to clear over 400 stranded vehicles, including the Amarnath yatra convoy, they said.
