Srinagar: For years, people visiting the mountainous terrains of Jammu and Kashmir have to face the delay in journey due to blockade of highway either due to mishap or snowfall. Taking a major step in this regard, the state tourism department with the help of Beacon has installed a LCD screen at TRC of Srinagar to provide the latest and update condition of highways routes.

More than often tourists had to wait for long hours even days to get the highway route cleared. What is the weather at the National Highway? Is the way blocked? Is there a snowfall or not? These are few of the questions which kept commuters rattling on the Srinagar-Jammu or Srinagar-Leh national highway.

But from now, the commuters before starting for their trip would be able get all to such information through the LCD screen.

Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Dr. Asgar Samoon dedicated the project to the people. OSD Aamir said, “The LCD will screen all the important information about the NH. The screen will be attached to the internet protocol.”
