Jammu bound trucks from Kashmir valley had a free access on Srinagar-Jammu Highway due to the efforts of the government.
There have been complaints in the past that the traffic is parked on the highway for days together, inflicting heavy damage to the fruit in the trucks.
Recently the government gave free access to HMVs 11616 trucks traversing NH-44.
Government has advised the truckers to strictly avoid overloading & check fitness of their vehicles before undertaking journey on the highway
What else can be more tiring than waiting and waiting for hours together doing nothing. It is no assumption or imagination but was the plight of truckers only a week back on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway. These goods carriers were halted by the traffic authorities both during their up or down movement for hours or sometimes days together as a measure to manage the traffic better on this mountainous road.
Then what could be termed as a greatest relief measure for all the truckers traversing the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway on routine basis than to allow them ply freely with no more halts in-between the two capitals. These drivers can’t be more happy than to use this road without any undue interruptions. They are fortunate to see the end of that tiring waiting period which they were made to do in the name of traffic management.
