GELE­PHU - ZHEMGANG HIGH­WAY CLOSED TO TRAF­FIC

Business Bhutan - - Nation -

The road­block at Ossey has caused the Gele­phu-Zhemgang high­way’s closure to traf­fic for the last 18 days. About 300ms of the road’s for­ma­tion width was com­pletely washed off and heavy land­slides keep oc­cur­ring, wors­en­ing the block.

Depart­ment of Roads has sta­tioned eight peo­ple, in­clud­ing ma­chine op­er­a­tors, two crawl drillers and three ex­ca­va­tors on ei­ther side of the road.
