CHITWAN — The Narayangadh-Muglin road section caved in near Gaighat in Chitwan on Wednesday forcing one-way vehicular movement along the road secrion.
According to Information Officer of Narayangadh-Muglin Road Project, Engineer Shiva Khanal, the 30-metre long and seven-metre wide road surface, located at a distance of 17 kilometres from Chitwan, that started caving in on Tuesday has fallen in one metre deep this morning.
The road section has collapsed up to the middle part, including two-metre unpaved road, opposite of hillside, he said. A huge landslide occurred in the area on Tuesday evening, resulting in the cave-in.
He said that a team of technicians has been called from Kathmandu to find out the cause of the cave-in.
The other half of the road along which one-way vehicular movement has been operated is also under the risk of caving in.
