Fresh snowfall shuts Srinagar-Leh highway
Srinagar: Fresh snowfall on the Zojila Pass on Tuesday forced the closure of the Srinagar-Leh highway. Authorities said the Srinagar-Jammu highway was still open for traffic.
Similarly, snowfall has closed the Mughal road connecting the Kashmir Valley with Poonch district in Jammu region. But traffic on the Srinagar-Jammu highway was normal, authorities said.
Incessant rains in the plains and fresh snowfall in the higher reaches during the last 24 hours has brought relief for the locals after a long dry winter season.
Spring rains are expected to augment the water resources of the Valley and also delay the melting down of the perennial snow reservoirs in the mountains.
