There are higher risks of landslides nearby Mauri Bridge, Namsi Bridge, Kalikhola and Tuin Bridge areas.

Similarly, roads are required to be maintained at Gaighat, Dumre Bridge, Ghumaune, Simaltal, Jalbire and Panchkilo, which are reeling under low risk of landslides.

Vehicular movement along the road section has been disrupted for the past couple of years due to repeated incidents of landslides.
