Jajarkot-Dolpa transport service obstructed


Jajarkot, July 28 (RSS): Transportation on the Jajarkot-Dolpa road has been obstructed due to landslide triggered by incessant rainfall.

As a result, travellers are forced to walk to their respective destination. Landslides have occurred in various sections of the Jajarkot-Dolpa road section.

The road section in Khaharekhola next to the Santichautara buspark, Thantibazaar, Simalgairi and other places have been blocked due to landslide.

The Bheri municipality had allocated funds from the disaster management fund to maintain and clear roads during the monsoon. But since the Division Road Office in Chaurjahari, Rukum is overseeing the Khalanga and Khalanga-Paanchkatiya road, budget from the fund cannot be used for it, the municipality sources said.

Locals have demanded that the Division Road Office needs to work to bring back the road to operation immediately. Failure of the Department of Roads to construct the retaining wall along the road side properly is inviting landslides in the road section, locals have said.
