Srinagar – Leh Highway reopens for 2013

April 6, 2013 at 10:11 pm

BRO has fulfilled its promise of reopening Srinagar – Leh Highway today, by reopening it in record time.

Although initially only light vehicles will be allowed to cross Zoji La and chances of the route closing down for a few days in case of snowfall is quite high, it nonetheless goes to show the effort BRO is putting in, to keep this strategic highway open as long as humanly possible.

Even today 100 vehicles from Ladakh crossed over into Kashmir, while 250 vehicles crossed over in to Ladakh, carrying crucial supplies for Ladakh, which has been landlocked for the past 5 months.
