Landslide At Sahasradhara Disrupts Mid Hill Highway

The landslide triggered by incessant rain since Tuesday evening has disrupted the Parbat-Baglung road section along the mid hill highway.

Traffic along the road section has come to a halt since last night following continuous landslides in Kusma municipality-1, Sahasradhara of Parbat district.

As landslides are continually taking place here for over two weeks, the road traffic has come to disruption in a frequent manner.

Due to torrential rain in the area since Tuesday evening, it has been a trouble to remove the debris and resume traffic operation on the road, shared District Traffic Police Office Krishna Khadka.

Excavators have been arranged to clear the road, he said, adding traffic would come to normalcy by this afternoon if the rain ceased to take place.

With the road traffic thrown out of gear, vehicles bound to Baglung, Myagdi and Mustang districts have been stranded at Nayapul and those en route to Pokhara and Kathmandu from the districts have been also parked along the road at Maldhunga since last night.
