CHITWAN: One-way traffic is being operated along the Narayangadh-Muglin avenue area as the street near Gaighat has caved in.
The 30-metre lengthy and seven-metre large road surface, positioned at a distance of 17 kilometres from Chitwan, that started out caving in on Tuesday has fallen in one metre deep this morning, in accordance to Information Officer of Narayangadh-Muglin Road Project, Engineer Shiva Khanal. He said that a team of technicians has been known as from Kathmandu to discover the motive of the cave-in.
The road has collapsed up to the middle part, which include two-metre unpaved road, contrary of hillside. The other half of the road along which one-way vehicular movement has been operated is also beneath the danger of caving in.
It has been assumed that the cave-in may also have been caused by the watershed existing on the wall of the roadside hill that drains through the street underground toward outlet in Trishuli River.
Moreover, the technicians have assumed that the cave-in may have came about due to injury in the soil and rock anchoring, which was positioned there in 2003.
