Due to heavy snowfall during winters, restoration work of roads in tribal district Lahaul and Spiti begins.
The Tandi-Keylong-Darcha, Samdo-Kaza-Gramphu and the Koksar-Rohtang roads were closed for traffic due to heavy snowfall.
Department official said as per the fresh report of the BRO, the Manali-Leh road had been restored from Manali to Gulaba whereas the snow had been completely removed from the Sisu-Jispa stretch and Darcha. Due to the recent spell of snow, one-kilometer road length between Tandi and Dalang was damaged badly.
The damage, however, had delayed the opening of a road between Sisu and Koksar. Likewise, Udaipur road had been restored and snow had been removed from the Udaipur-Tindi road which has been reopened for traffic. The BRO has deployed adequate manpower and machinery at Manali, Koksar, Tandi, Udaipur and Stingri stations to restore roads in the district. The work on opening Rohtang Pass from Koksar side would be started by the end of March, depending on the weather conditions.
He said the restoration work on the roads under the control of Public Works Department was also under progress.
