Imphal, July 9: Incessant heavy downpour in Manipur has triggered landslides along the mountainous national highways, suspending vehicular movement in the state, officials said on Sunday.
Two landslides at Sinam village in Tamenglong district have dislocated traffic along NH 37 as Border Roads Task Force labourers are trying to clear the debris. Hundreds of loaded trucks and oil tankers are stranded on the either side of the damaged National Highway.
District officials said that as torrential rains continue to lash Manipur and other northeastern states, there may be more landslides along the highways.
The water levels of major rivers are running above the danger mark. Manipur has been experiencing heavy downpour for the last four days and all low lying areas are inundated across state and national highways at several places.
According to reports the line of the split bisected the road leaving only one half available for further vehicular movement. Such collapse of surface along the highway is common during monsoon and the district was hit by one of the heaviest rainfall in recent times.
The source further added that heavy vehicles will not be able to move along the portion until it is properly repaired. Due to the phenomenon loaded vehicles as well as passenger buses coming towards Imphal has been stranded on the road at various places of the Highway and some are reportedly waiting for the repairing at Jiribam. Those vehicles going towards Jiribam from Imphal have also to come back at Imphal as there is no way that passenger vehicles could passed through the caved portion.
