CHITWAN, Aug 12: Landslides trigged by heavy rainfall have obstructed the Narayanghat-Mugling road section.
According to Shiva Khanal, information officer at the Narayanghat-Mugling Road Construction Project, vehicular movement was obstructed from Saturday afternoon. “Landslides have obstructed the road at Mugling, Seti Dovan, Bhalu Dhunga and Charkhola. The landslides are minor but we have not allowed vehicles because of the heavy rain,” said Khanal.
The Prithvi Highway, the only highway connecting the capital city with eastern and western Nepal, is often hit by landslides and traffic jams after the project to upgrade it to a four-lane road was implemented.
