Chitwan, July 11
The Narayangadh-Muglin road in Chitwan district has caved in near Gaighat of the district, resulting in the obstruction in one-way vehicular movement since Wednesday morning.
Experts have been called to study causes behind the fall. The engineers, however, have suspected that the disaster’s root lies in the river that flows beneath the road.
According to Engineer Shiva Khanal of the Narayangadh-Mugling Road Expansion Project, a minor crack was seen in the beginning, but it later started to expand. The road has caved in around one foot down.
The caved-in section is around 30 metre long and seven metre wide.
According to Assistant Residential Engineer, Gyanendra Ghimire, the Project might need to cut the wall and expand the road on the other side if the road continues to cave in.
The expert team will reach the incident site today to finalise what should be done further to repair the road.
