Gangtok:

A significant visitors jam was witnessed on NH 10 on Sunday as a number of landslides blocked Sikkim’s arterial freeway that connects the Himalayan state with the remainder of India, BRO sources mentioned.

However, many gentle autos have been seen taking a detour through Darjeeling in West Bengal to achieve their locations, they mentioned.

Heavy rain triggered a sequence of small landslides since Saturday evening and a serious one on Sunday morning within the twenty ninth Mile space between Teesta and Rambi in West Bengal, utterly blocking the freeway.

Serpentine queues of autos have been witnessed for greater than 1 km on each side of the landslide spot, the sources mentioned.

Border Roads Organisation (BRO) staff and officers have been engaged in clearing the freeway and hope to open it for one-way visitors throughout the day however steady rainfall is hindering the work, they mentioned.

The space had earlier witnessed frequent landslides throughout monsoon. The Himalayan area has been receiving heavy rain within the final one week.
