BHARATPUR, Aug 22:  Officials at the Road Division Office have said that it is going to take five to six hours to resume two-way traffic along the Narayanghat-Mugling road blocked by a landslide last night.

A landslide at Namsi at 8PM on Monday obstructed the road, said information officer at the Road Division Office, engineer Chandeshwor Sah, adding that four heavy equipment were used to remove the debris.

Although the machines were mobilized to clear the obstruction at 10:00PM, it will take six more hours for the complete removal of the landslide debris.

Only 30 percent debris has been removed so far, according to police chief at Area Police Office Muglin, Inspector Bishal Tamang.

The vehicles including passenger buses have been stranded at different places along the road following the landslide triggered by rainfall. The vehicles coming from Kathmandu are stopped at Mugling, Kurintar, Phisling and Dhading, while those from the east-west highway at Bharatpur and Gaindakot, Nawalpur.
