Kathmandu : The Nagdhunga-Naubise road which was blocked by a landslide following incessant rain has been restored.
The landslide had hit the route at 5:30 am today near Chisapani Dhara along the Tribhuvan Highway and it was readied for traffic a while ago. According to Metropolitan Police Circle Thankot’s chief, Deputy Superintendent of Police Mohan Khand, works to reopen the road went for six hours with the help of two excavators.
Vehicles to and from the Kathmandu Valley via the Nagdhunga point have made a long queue following the traffic disruption. The disruption led to a traffic jam up to Thankot towards Kathmandu and up to Khanikhola towards Dhading. The works to widen the highway is going on near Sisnekhola where the tunnel construction project is based on. The road widening project is said to be a reason behind for frequent landslides along the highway.
