Border Road Organisation (BRO) official on Sunday informed that due to the incessant rainfall massive landslides occured at more than 20 locations along the vital Balipara-Charduar-Tawang (BCT) Road in western Arunachal, severely affecting movement of vehicular traffic.
The BCT Road connects three districts – East Kameng, West Kameng and Tawang.
A vast stretch of the road between Sessa and Nechiphu areas was damaged by the landslide, due to which a large number of commuters were stranded on both ends, the Border Road Organisation official said.
However, no casualty was reported due to the landslides which occurred in West Kameng district following heavy rain on Friday and Saturday.
“On receiving the information of landslides, the organisation mobilised men and machinery and started work on a war footing to restore connectivity by filling the breaches and clearing debris”, BRO commander Col Anil Kotial said.
“The stranded vehicles started moving through the affected areas from Saturday night while restoration works continued till Sunday”, he informed.
