Early snowfall forces road closure

Shimla, October 24
Early snowfall in higher reaches has forced the Border Roads Organisation to close the Manali-Sarchu and Tandi-Killar-Bansal roads from November 1.

A spokesperson for the BRO said that the closure of the Rohtang and Baralachala passes due to snowfall did not permit any movement of vehicles.

Thus, after October 31, 2006, if any eventuality arose the BRO would not be in a position to carry out any snow clearance operation for evacuation.

In case any vehicle got stuck mid-way due to bad weather or any unforeseen eventuality, it would not be responsible for any loss of human lives and public property.

He advised the public not to take any chance to move on this road and ply vehicles after October 31, 2006.
