Landslides Close National Highway, 69 Other Roads in Himachal Pradesh

In Himachal Pradesh, heavy rainfall has caused landslides that led to the closure of a National Highway and 69 other roads across the state. The landslides, exacerbated by the intense monsoon downpours, have blocked key transportation arteries, posing challenges to commuters and affecting traffic flow in several regions.

The affected National Highway and roads are crucial for connectivity within Himachal Pradesh, impacting daily commuters, tourists, and goods transport. Authorities have mobilised efforts to clear debris and restore connectivity swiftly, prioritising the safety of travellers amidst the ongoing adverse weather conditions.

The landslides highlight the vulnerability of mountainous regions to natural calamities during the monsoon season. Local administrations have issued advisories urging caution while travelling through affected areas and recommended alternative routes where feasible.

Efforts are underway to assess the extent of damage and expedite clearance operations to reopen the closed roads at the earliest. Heavy machinery and workforce deployment are part of the coordinated efforts aimed at minimising disruptions caused by the landslides.

Residents and tourists are advised to stay informed about road conditions and adhere to safety protocols while travelling through landslide-prone areas. The state government and local authorities remain vigilant, emphasising proactive measures to mitigate risks and ensure the resumption of normal traffic flow on affected routes.

The closure of the National Highway and other roads underscores the immediate need for infrastructure resilience and disaster preparedness in regions prone to such natural hazards.
