Likewise, The Rudrabeni-Bamitaksar road in Gulmi district has been obstructed due to a landslide triggered by incessant rain for three days.
Vehicular movement on the road was halted since last night due to the deposition of landslide debris on the road. The landslide occurred at Daharekhola.
The landslide debris was removed on Thursday using a bulldozer but landslide occurred at the same location again last night, blocking the road. Hundreds of passengers and scores of vehicles are stranded due to the obstruction of one of the busiest road in the district.
Efforts are on to remove the landslide debris and open the road for traffic. More than a dozen rural roads in Gulmi district have been obstructed due to the waterlogged condition following the incessant rain.
Similarly, The Hetauda- Kulekhani Sisneri road section of the Hetauda-Kathmandu highway has been obstructed due to the landslide triggered by incessant rainfall since last night.
The Sisneri police said that the authorities are working to clear the debris and resume vehicular movement but will take some days. The landslides have occurred at Indrasarobar rural municipality 2 and 3 along the road section.
Similarly, Pharping-Kathmandu road section has been obstructed due to landslide occurred at Mahalaxmi rivulet along the road section.
However, Hetauda-Kathmandu road section along the Tribhuvan Highway is in operation, said Makawanpur Traffic Police.
Meanwhile, Gaighat town is under threat after an embankment along the Baruwa river at Triyuga municipality-11 started breaking with the rising water level and water current in the river following incessant rain.
It has been raining continuously for three days in Udayapur district and the overflowing Baruwa river has started washing away a portion of the embankment.
Shivalayatol, Sakelatol and Gaighat market area are at high risk due to this.
The embankment has become old and worn out as it was constructed many years back, and the local government has not constructed a new stronger embankment here, increasing the risk of the river washing away the entire structure.
It is said more than 2,000 houses in these areas are at risk of inundation. Now, efforts are being made at the initiatives of the municipality ward number 11 and the locals to divert the river water away from the embankment by using excavators.
