Galeshwar, August 5

The Beni-Jomsom road section along the Kaligandaki corridor, which had remained close for three days, has come into operation from Thursday evening.

With the resumption of vehicular movement, the vehicles have moved to their destinations, the Beni-Jomsom road supervisor Indra Singh Sherchan says.

The road was obstructed since Monday after a landslide at Kavrebhir caused due to torrential rain. Likewise, the road near Ghopteodhar of the same site along the borderland of Myagdi and Mustang districts had collapsed, adding further owes to the vehicular movement.

The maintenance of the road was completed on Wednesday and Thursday with the mobilisation of construction equipment and human resources, Sherchan adds.

During the monsoon season, the Myagdi section of the road is at high risk of frequent disruptions.
