"No traffic will be allowed on the highway as road clearance operations are on at Battery Cheshma and some other parts of the road," a traffic department official said.

At least 2,000 vehicles were stranded at different places on the 300 km long road.

The valley-bound traffic was complaining that they have run out of money as shopkeepers and hotel owners have been charging them high rates.

Authorities said the highway was likely to be restored by Thursday afternoon.

However, nobody should undertake the journey before contacting traffic control rooms in Jammu and Srinagar city.
