Srinagar, Feb 04 (KNS): Keeping in view the peculiar condition of the road especially between Ramban-Ramsoo-Banihal- Jawahar Tunnel and Zig-Jawahar Tunnel coupled with narrow width of road at Mehar and Digdol, the movement of HMVs would not be feasible on NHW on Sunday. As such no movement of HMVs including convoys of Army, BSF, CRPF either from Jammu or Srinagar shall be allowed on Sunday.

However, in order to facilitate the passengers and strictly subject to fair weather and good condition of the road, movement of LMVs and light passenger vehicles (excluding Tempo Traveller and buses) shall be allowed both ways. Under this plan movement of all such vehicles shall be allowed from Nagrota, Jammu towards Srinagar/ Doda region from 0700 hours up to 1100 hours and at Udhampur up to 1330 hours only. Similarly, movement of LMVs/ passenger vehicles (except buses/Tempo Travellers) from Srinagar towards Jammu side shall be allowed from Levdora, Qazigund from 0800 hours and all these vehicles shall cross Jawahar Tunnel by 1400 hours positively. Strict implementation of cut off timings shall be ensured for hassle free movement of traffic on NHW.

In view of prediction of rain/snowfall, commuters are requested/advised that vehicles are not parked in any landslide/avalanche/vulnerable zones of NHW especially from Ramsoo - Jawahar Tunnel - Levdora under any circumstances. All the vulnerable/avalanche prone zones should be kept free from any kind of traffic to avoid any eventuality.
