Disrupting landslip on GS Road

Assam-Meghalaya transport communication has come to a grinding halt following a massive landslide on the Guwahati-Shillong road on Sunday.

A huge hillock slipped on the vital road in Umiang area in the morning forcing hundreds of vehicles to remain stranded for hours.

Dozens of workers have been deployed by the National Highway Authority of India with ten bulldozers to clear the road. According to Ri Bhoi district administration, it would take several hours on Monday to clear the mud.

Triggered by incessant rains, landslides wreaked havoc on Saturday morning at Byrinhat area disrupting surface communication for several hours. But it was cleared on Sunday. Hours after it, another landslip took place at Unming near Nongpoh which is expected to be cleared on Monday afternoon.
