Jalanhar Jammu Traffic--Try Mukerian Kathlore- Kathua Route

Jalandhar Pathankot road is one of the busiest roads in India, linking Jammu and Kashmir among others. Pilgrims from all over the country flock to Vaishno Devi( Trikuta Hills, Jammu ) in Tata Sumos and Qualis Vans .
But the 4 laning of this vital road has been completed only on the Jalandhar- Bhogpur (25 Km)segment. It appears that from Bhogpur onwards to Pathankot work is not progressing.
It is urgently required that the remaining section, is also completed , without any delay. Bhogpur to Mukerian is most Accident Prone. Although there are High Patrol Units have been stationed . Ambulances/ Trauma Vans are urgently required.
Pending the competition of Bhogpur Pathankot section, some sort of Speed Limit should be strictly implemented.
At night Head Lamps work without dipper. This causes deadly blindness to on coming traffic. Traffic Police should strictly implement Dipper Use at night.
Motorists to Jammu should be encouraged to take the Mukerian- Dina Nagar - Kathlore route so that Pathankot is by passed and Highway decongested.
Govt. should put Jalandhar Pathankot Highway upgradation on the top of its priority list.
