Shimla, June 4
Traffic on the Hindustan-Tibet road has been disrupted since last night following a massive landslide triggered by heavy rains near Matiana, about 45 km from here.
The massive landslide took place at 8 pm last night leading to complete closure of vehicular traffic to Kinnaur and other areas. With the closure of the National Highway No. 22 the entire Kinnaur bound traffic, including HRTC buses, have been diverted via Basantpur. Work on clearing the road was still on as the PWD had pressed four bulldozers into service to clear debris from the road.
