Solan, May 26


The Parwanoo-Solan section of the Kalka-Shimla National Highway No. 5 was on Sunday thrown open to traffic after remaining closed for 13 hours due to excavation of a hill near Sanwara.

The highway was closed on Saturday night for repair work. It was earlier scheduled to open at 4 am.

The highway was closed for vehicular traffic due to the removal of big dangerous rocks hanging on hill near Sanwara (Dharampur) in Solan district.

With the peak tourist season being under way, the Garkhal junction faced a heavy influx of vehicles. The traffic emanating from Chandigarh was diverted through the Parwanoo-Jangeshu road and the scant traffic staff faced a Harculean task in ensuring smooth movement of the vehicles.

Being a weekend, there was a huge inflow of tourist vehicles. The buses and trucks coming from Shimla were diverted through the Kumarhatti-Nahan road.

A section of the Kalka-Shimla rail track was also damaged near Sanwara after boulders fell on it two days ago.
Earlier on Saturday, Solan Deputy Commissioner Vinod Kumar visited the spot and took stock of the situation.
He said GR Infraprojects, which was undertaking its four-laning, had assured to complete the excavation work at the said site within a day if the traffic was put on hold.

किन्नौर में एनएच पर दरकी पहाड़ी - फोटो : अमर उजाला









जनजातीय जिला किन्नौर के काशंग नाले के नजदीक राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग-5 सुबह आठ बजे चट्टानें गिरने से पूरी तरह से बाधित हो गया। करीब तीन घंटे तक यात्री काफी परेशान हुए। सीमा सड़क संगठन ने राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग की बहाली के लिए तुरंत चार मशीनों और कई मजदूरों को तैनात कर दिया जिसके बाद एनएच-5 को तीन घंटे के बाद बहाल कर दिया गया।

ऐसे में चट्टानों को तोड़ने के लिए ब्लास्टिंग करनी पड़ रही है। लोगों के अनुसार हैवी ब्लास्टिंग के कारण पहाड़ी से चट्टानें दरक रही हैं। आए दिन एनएच बंद हो रहा है और हादसे हो रहे हैं। करीब 2 किलोमीटर काम हो चुका है और 2 किलोमीटर काम शेष रह गया है।

अभी हाल ही में यहां पर दो व्यक्तियों की चट्टान की चपेट में आने से मौत हो गई थी। ऐसे में काशंग नाले के पास मंगलवार सुबह आठ बजे जब पहाड़ी से चट्टान गिरी तो सड़क के दोनों तरफ काफी लोग थे, लेकिन चट्टान गिरते समय सभी बाल-बाल बच गए और अपनी जान बचाकर इधर-उधर भाग गए।

बीआरओ के ओसी डीके राघव ने बताया कि मंगलवार सुबह आठ बजे चट्टानें गिरने से सड़क अवरुद्ध हो गई थी। सीमा सड़क संगठन के मजदूरों ने सड़क को तीन घंटे में बहाल कर दिया है। एनएच पांच का पांगी नाला से पूह तक करीब 50 किलोमीटर तक विस्तारीकरण का काम होना है। इसमें से कुछ काम हो चुका है और कुछ काम शेष है। मौजूदा समय में कांशगनाला से आक्वा पुल तक करीब 2 किलोमीटर में काम चल रहा है।

The Amarnath yatra was suspended on Monday as a precautionary measure following a strike called by separatist in Kashmir valley to mark the third death anniversary of former Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, officials said. The annual pilgrimage to the 3,880 meter high holy cave shrine in south Kashmir Himalayas will resume Tuesday, they said.
The officials said the Amarnath-bound convoy, which usually leaves the Bhagwati Nagar base camp here for Kashmir in the early hours, was not allowed to head for the cave shrine to avoid any untoward incident in view of law and order situation in the valley. Wani, once a poster boy of militancy in the valley, was killed in an encounter with security forces on July 8, 2016, in Kokernag area of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
“The yatra is suspended from Jammu for the day and will resume Tuesday,” a police official said. So far, a total of 36,309 pilgrims have left the Bhagwati Nagar base camp since the commencement of the yatra from Jammu on June 30, a day ahead of the official start of the 46-day pilgrimage from the twin tracks -- traditional 36-km Pahalgam in Anantnag district and 14-km shorter Baltal route in Ganderbal district.
Till Sunday night, 95,923 yatris had offered prayers at the cave shrine, housing the naturally formed ice-shivlingam, since the beginning of the yatra, which is scheduled to end on August 15 coinciding with the Raksha Bandhan festival.
