Authorities ban movement of heavy goods vehicles on three routes in Anantnag
Srinagar: The authorities in south Kashmir’s Anantnag on Wednesday banned the movement of heavy goods vehicles on three inner routes, which lead to the Qazigund tunnel on the Srinagar-Jammu highway.
In an order, district magistrate Anantnag, Dr. Basharat Qayoom said that in view of the apple harvest season there has been a noticeable increase in the movement of heavy goods vehicles along all routes especially the National Highway, news agency KNO reported.
The order said that it has been reported that in order to avoid the rush on National Highway, the truck drivers adopt various inner routes to reach the Qazigund tunnel area, which leads to traffic jamming due to which the general public including patients suffer badly.
It added that in the previous year, a child lost his life, as he couldn’t get timely medical aid due to traffic jamming on Anantnag-Dooru-Verinag (ADV road) road.
