Two hundred roads including three closed national highways

Two hundred roads, including three national highways, were closed due to rubble in the state after night rains. About 30 meters from the Badrinath national road near the Pursadi sewer between Nandprayag-Maithana collapsed. Because of this, many passengers stranded on the road had to spend the night on the road. There are reports of further damage in the Chamoli district.
According to the bulletin issued by Lonvi, a total of 200 roads are closed in the state. These include three national highways, 14 state highways, three main district highways, 11 other district highways, 61 rural highways and 108 PMGSY highways. According to the report, traffic was eased with the opening of 42 roads on Tuesday. However, due to intermittent rains, road opening works were hampered. At the same time, due to the continuous remains in many places, the removal process continued throughout the day. From the first day 111 roads were cut, while on Tuesday 89 roads were cut. 259 JCB machines were used to open the roads. Apart from this, damage has also been recorded to the power and water lines in some areas. With the opening of the roads closed, the district administration is sending travelers to the destination by alternative routes.

Questions are being raised about the quality of construction due to the collapse of part of Allweather Road

The Badrinath National Highway, under the All-Weather Road in Chamoli district, collapsed near the Pursadi sewer between Nandprayag-Maithana. Questions are raised about the quality of construction. No officer is willing to say anything in that regard. A senior NHAI official, on condition of anonymity, said the all-weather road was recently built. Some parts are still being worked on. The mountains are raw, so other incidents of this kind can also happen in the rainy season. As 30 meters of the road have collapsed, nothing can be said without investigating.
