Jammu and Kashmir government on Wednesday decided to completely lift the ban on civilian traffic between Srinagar-Baramulla stretch of the National Highway-44 starting May 2.

A government spokesperson said the “restrictions” will, however, continue between Srinagar and Udhampur. He said these would be reviewed periodically and relaxation would be made as to the need for restriction reduces.

He said the local administration would continue to facilitate the movement of civilian traffic and a complete review of restrictions on the highway would be done subsequently.

“The purpose of these restrictions is in the larger interest of the security of everyone and appealed the people to extend full cooperation in the smooth regulation of traffic,” he said.

In April, the government had imposed restrictions on civilian movement on NH-44 connecting Jammu to Srinagar “in order to ensure adequate security to the movement of security forces’ convoys.
