Butwal, June 15

A flood has made a section of the East-West Highway cave in, thereby obstructing the vehicular movement, in Devdaha of Rupandehi on Tuesday.

The flood in Charange Khola had made a diversion road cave in between Butwal Thread Factory and Ganesh Nagar Fire Line at around 12:30 pm today. As a result, hundreds of vehicles have been stopped on both sides of the flood.

As a new bridge is being constructed there, the diversion road was made for the vehicles to ply.

DSP Dilli Narayan Pandey of the Lumbini Provincial Traffic Police Office says the road is likely to remain obstructed throughout Tuesday as the rain continues in the area.

Police have advised long-distance vehicles to choose Butwal-Manigram-Devdaha or Butwal-Bhairahawa-Bhumahi as alternative routes.
