National Highway 1A (NH 1A) that has been renumbered as NH 44, is a National Highway in North India that connects the Kashmir valley to Jammu and the rest of India. The northern terminal is in Uri in Jammu & Kashmir and the southern terminal is in Jalandhar. Stretches of NH 1A run through some extremely treacherous terrain and shut-offs because of avalanches or landslides are common in Winter months.[1] The famous Jawahar Tunnel that connects Jammu with the Kashmir Valley across the Pir Panjal Range falls en route. The total length of NH 1A is 663 km (412 mi).

An all-weather alternate road project that will cut short the distance between the two cities by 82 km (51 mi) and the travel time by two-thirds is currently being considered[2]

Approximately 554 km (344 mi)stretch of NH 1A from Srinagar to Jalandhar is a part of the North-South Corridor.[3]
