Damauli-Dumre road section under Prithvi Highway has been blocked again. The Prithvi Highway has been blocked again after vehicles got stuck on the alternative route made after the road was washed away.
The highway had been blocked earlier after the landslide washed away the road in the drain of Bandipur Gaonpalika-1 after incessant rains. The highway was blocked on July 19 and 20 and was brought into operation after a long delay.
An alternative route was created after the landslide washed away the highway road. Bhanubhakta Pokhrel, Ward Chairman of Bandipur-1 informed that the highway was blocked after the vehicle got stuck due to mud due to lack of gravel on the alternative route.
He said it would take at least five to six hours to bring the vehicle into operation.
