Trishuli-Betrawati traffic resumes
Aug 22, 2018-
Vehicular movement in Gerkhutar along the Trishuli-Betrawati road section resumed on Tuesday after water level in the Gerkhu stream receded. The only Nepal-China road link was cut off after the rain-swollen stream destroyed the bridge on Sunday.
The Galchhi-Mailung-Syaphrubesi-Rasuwagadhi Road Project has been building a diversion using hume pipes and gabion wires in the stream. The road sections at Gerkhutar, Tirtirebhir, Khoppangbhir, Lingling and Timure, among other areas, of Pasang Lamhu Highway have been damaged due to landslides and floods. Bus driver Hira Tamang said driving on the route is difficult due to damaged road sections. (PR)
