The Parwanoo-Solan part of National Highway No. 5 has been closed for vehicular movement due to a landslide near Chaki Mod after heavy rainfall overnight.
A spokeswoman for the District Solan Administration said that after a mild landslide, the administration has restricted the movement of vehicles on National Highway No. 5.
Vehicular traffic has been temporarily banned. The spokesman said that since last night it has been raining heavily in the area, due to which many roads in the district have come to a standstill after landslides.
Some vehicles got buried. And the movement of vehicles has also come to a standstill.
Similar information is also being received from other areas of the district.
Meanwhile, the Solan Police have appealed to the general public because the National Highway near Chaki Mod has been closed after landslides, and other alternate routes in the district are also closed due to mild landslides at many places.
The police have appealed to bring vehicles on the roads only when it is urgent.
The spokesman said that following a minor landslide near Chaki Mor on the Parwanoo-Dharampur National Highway, vehicular movement has been stopped for safety reasons.
This highway is the lifeline of the state’s people due to its connectivity with the rest of the nation, which affects supply of vegetables outside the state, rations, and essential goods to the state.
During the closure of NH-5, the hospitality industry also came to a halt.
