They said the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) construction company, which is responsible for maintaining the old route of the Srinagar-Jammu national highway, has mobilized its men and machines to clear the accumulated landslides and boulders from the highway remove.
Official sources said it took them about two hours to clear the street.
Hundreds of vehicles en route to Jammu and Srinagar got stuck in long lines on both sides of the highway.
Traffic police said the highway was reopened to traffic at 6:45 p.m. after the landslide that had accumulated on the highway was cleared.
After the road clearance, there was a congestion on the highway between Kelamorh and Chanderkote due to a single lane stretch of road in front of Cafeteria Morh, Ramban and other locations.
The traffic police, who oversee regulating traffic in Ramban, said the intermittent triggering of rolling stones from hills is still affecting the smooth flow of traffic in front of Cafeteria Morh.
