Jammu: The strategic Jammu-Srinagar highway was closed for traffic on Sunday due to fresh snowfall.

“Snowfall in Patnitop and Bannihal sectors has led to the halt of traffic today (Sunday),” a traffic department official said.

The highway was partially restored for traffic on Friday to clear over 2,000 vehicles stranded at various places on the over 300-km long road.

The weather office has forecast improvement in weather from Monday.
