I did the Cliff Hanger Road last year on 3 Jun 2019,
amazing experience,
will be sad as this section may get closed, cause they may not maintain it,
specially if rock fall on this section and block the road, will they remove them on daily basis,
and on this section there is no mobile coverage.

Just saw this news the the bypass is ready for use.

On our trip, we were stopped here for an hour, as the road was being cut in the upper part.
and huge rocks were falling,
then this bull dozer would go and clear the huge boulders
and then allow traffic to cross.

After an hour we were allowed to go towards Cliff Hanger,
and this is where boulders were removed,
these had fallen from the upper cut in the mountain for the by pass road.

last year we were really unlucky not to be able to cross the Cliffhanger section from Killar side. lots of debris and slides happened due to new road works on the upper section. We could just enter the cliffhanger but could not traverse on main cliffhanger section. Now i fear we may never be able to cross it again :(

this is the point from where we had to turn back

If you are going from Keylong side to the Cliff Hanger road,
then this is where you either take the cliff road, or the bypass upper road.
Upper road now complete,
so in all likelihood either the cliff section will be closed
OR
wont be maintained so you wont be able to drive on it from next year.
