Landslide Blocks Uttarakhand’s NH 109

National Highway (NH)- 109 at Rudraprayag was blocked on Thursday, with long queues of vehicles after a sudden landslide led to the roll down of debris from the hill near Tarsali village in Rudraprayag.

The road blockage led to a long queue of vehicles on both sides of the road. No casualty was reported as the passengers were warned by the locals before the debris fell.

District Magistrate (DM) Mayur Dixit told ANI that the work of opening the highway has been started and the safe movement of passengers will be done. “All the passengers have been stopped at safe places. The work of opening the highway is being done by national Highways. Once the debris is cleared, the safe vehicular movement of passengers will be done,” DM Dixit said.

The route caters to the pilgrims travelling to and from Kedarnath and Sonprayag. Pilgrims going to Kedarnath have been stopped at Rudraprayag, Tilwara, Agastyamuni and Guptkashi while those coming back from Sonprayag have been stopped at safe places at Sonprayag, Sitapur.
