MANAHARI, Aug 13: All short-distance roads from Hetauda to Kathmandu have been blocked due to landslides triggered by rains since last night.

The Hetauda-Bhainse-Bhimphedi road section is obstructed due to a landslide that occurred at a distance of two kilometers from Bhainse Bazaar, according to the police.

Similarly, the Kulekhani-Sisneri-Kathmandu road section is blocked due to a mudslide at Bhaludanda of Indrasarovar Rural Municipality-3 in Makwanpur district.

Likewise, the Tribhuvan Highway is blocked by landslides in the Lamidanda area of Bhimphedi-9.

Problems have been faced in removing the landslide debris blocking the roads as it has been raining continuously, said Inspector Basanta Acharya, the Chief of Makawanpur Traffic Police.

The Kanti Highway also has been blocked due to landslides at Aanpchaur, Bakaiya Rural Municipality-11. Police have urged people traveling by vehicle from Hetauda to Kathmandu to use alternative roads.

Meanwhile, the swollen Karra rivulet which flows through Hetauda-4 has inundated the Gardohi area following heavy rains. The local administration has issued flood warning in the areas near the rivulet.
