CHAUTARA: The Melamchi-Tipeni-Bhetang road section in Sindhupalchowk district is blocked for almost a month now.
Transportation service was halted after heavy landslides blocked the road at different places along the Melamchi-Tipeni section. It is said that around Rs 8.5 million is needed for the maintenance of the road.
Engineer at District Technicians' Office Parshuram Baidar said that the District Development Committee is likely to face difficulty managing such a huge amount without support from the Department of Roads. People of 10 different VDCs have been hard hit due to vehicular disruption.
