A suggestion: the title of this thread could be changed as 2020 Jammu-Srinagar-Leh Road [Including Mughal Road] Status so that all the updates of Mughal Road also could be accommodated in one thread. I know there is a separate thread available for Mughal Road. Instead of having two threads, all the information could be found in one thread.

WEATHER UPDATE
23 MARCH 2020 TO 1ST WEEK APRIL 2020.

Looks like the WD will finally reach us by late evening today, and bring more snowfall, and be in full force by midnight, and then from J&K it will spread to Ladakh, then Himachal, and also Uttarakhand,

Another WD following behind it, should reach us by 1st week April.

Not an issue for travel, as lock down has started
BUT
Wonder how the farmers will cope up, already financial crises is on,
and now this rain and snowfall will create problems for Wheat and Apple crop.

Srinagar-Leh highway, a strategic road that connects Ladakh with the rest of the world, was thrown open on Saturday by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) to carry essential commodities to the region despite the fresh snowfall in the Zojila pass, an official said.

A BRO official said the 425km road was closed in December last year due to heavy snow at Zojila pass.

As per the directions from Divisional Commissioner Ladakh, there was an emergent need to stockpile essential commodities in the Ladakh UT, he said.

“Keeping that in mind the Team of project Beacon cleared fresh snow at the Zojilla at 11500 ft and made the road motorable,” he added.

The BRO official said that about 18 oil tankers and other essential commodities have been allowed to move towards Leh / Ladakh from Zojilla pass.

This year, the official said, snowfall had broken all past records of the last one decade. The snow clearance operations were undertaken by project Beacon of BRO from Gagangir to zero point and the same was done by project Vijayak from Drass towards zero point.
