DAMAULI: The Prithvi Highway has been obstructed after the road at Kantar of Byas Municipality-5 in Tanahun district has caved in, said the municipality.

The road collapsed today afternoon due to incessant rain for the past two days.

As a result, two-way traffic has been obstructed, and it takes time to repair the road, said Bishnu Kumar Shrestha, the ward chair. Following this, the vehicles heading to Pokhara from Damauli have been redirected through Bhorletar Chowk of Damauli bazaar and Polang, he said.

Initiatives have been taken to clear debris and resume the obstructed road, said the district police office.
