Chief District Officer of Manang, Bishnu Lamichhane, shared that a new track is being opened to ensure connectivity in Manang that has been disconnected since the roadway was blocked.
Road Division Office, Lamjung’s engineer Suman Adhikari said that a sloppy hill is being cut at Bhratang of Manag Disyang Rural Municipality in the district to open track.
In absence of road connectivity since the disaster-induced damages on the road, locals here are facing problems for reaching the public offices and institutions such as health posts.
Currently, drilling-related works have been forwarded to the site deemed suitable to open a new track. The Nepali Army team will blast off the rocks on the sloppy hills and make headway for constructing a track, according to engineer Adhikari.
So far, 22-km of road under the 107-kilometre-Beshisahar-Chame has now been opened clearing the landslide debris. Debris would also be cleared off at Talekhu-Bhratang road section soon, informed Adhikari.
