Landslide blocks Pharping-Kulekhani road

KATHMANDU: The Pharping-Kulekhani road section connecting Kathmandu and Makawanpur districts has been obstructed due to landslides.

A landslip in Phakhel due to incessant rain has rolled down rocks and boulders on the road, causing obstruction in the passage of vehicles.

Excavators have been mobilised to clear the debris, but they are yet to clear the debris, according to the Metropolitan Traffic Police Division.

Police said efforts are underway to reopen the road and resume the traffic movement.
