Air, train services resume; highway partially open

February 01, 2023 | BK News Service

Normal flight operations resumed at Srinagar International Airport resumed on Tuesday, a day after poor visibility and continuous snowfall forced cancellation of all 68 scheduled flights.
Official sources said that two indigo flights landed at the airport before noon.
Earlier Director, Airport Authority of India (AAI), Srinagar Airport, Kuldeep Singh said that the visibility is good and the surface stands clear of snow for smooth arrival and departure of the flights.
Meanwhile the train services from Banihal to Baramulla and vice versa resumed this morning after a day-long suspension on Monday due to snowfall.
However, Jammu-Srinagar highway, the only surface link connecting Kashmir Valley with the outside world, remained closed. “People are advised not to take any journey on NH-44 (highway) till the restoration work is completed,’ a traffic department official here said.
Meanwhile, traffic was restored partially Tuesday on Srinagar-Jammu national highway a day after it was suspended due to landslides, shooting stones and snowfall, officials said.
An official said that the stranded vehicles were being allowed to move after the road was cleared. "Our men and machinery were on the job all day and night to restore the traffic", he said.
The official, however, said that no new traffic was allowed on the highway - only major surface link of Kashmir valley with the rest of the country.
"NH through for traffic. Intermittent shooting stones and slides still coming at some places. Travel very cautiously. Road slippery", SSP Ramban, Mohita Sharma tweeted.
