Landslides halt road traffic again in Tibet

Nyalim, Thu, 03 May 2012 ANI

Nyalim (Tibet), May 3 (Xinhua-ANI): Rain-triggered landslides and strong winds cut an international highway in southwest China's Tibet autonomous region once again on Thursday just after traffic resumed a day earlier.

The landslides occurred early Thursday morning on the No. 318 National Highway running from the regional capital of Lhasa to Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, with three large boulders blocking the road, a traffic officer at the scene said.

More than 10 road maintenance workers equipped with two bulldozers are working to clear the road, which was temporarily reopened Wednesday after being blocked by previous landslides that occurred at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

No casualties have been reported.

About 150 automobiles have been trapped in Zham township in Nyalam county as a result of the landslides. Efforts to reopen the road have been hampered by falling rocks. (Xinhua-ANI)
