AALO, Jul 11: Surface communication to West Siang district was snapped after a block occurred at the 26th kilometre near the Pangin junction, following the washing away of the formation cutting there.
“All-out efforts are being made to restore the road at the earliest, using JCBs,” informed Highway AE Gemar Padu, who is monitoring the condition of the Aalo-Pasighat road.
Sources informed that several minor landslides are occurring on the stretch of the road, owing to the continuous rain.
The Aalo-Likabali road, where highway construction work is being carried out, is not fit for use because of landslides and accumulation of heavy mud on the road.
