A massive landslide near Judicial Academy Ghandal on Monday night blocked the National Highway 205 that connected Shimla to Mandi.

A landslide triggered by heavy rain caused 50 metres of the road to cave in and forcing authorities to divert traffic, officials said. A car was damaged in the landslide but all passengers escaped unhurt.

Traffic coming from Mandi has been diverted via Bangora to Nalhatti and Ghanati, and that coming from Shimla side from Ghanati on the Kobagh-Kalihatti road, Deputy Commissioner Shimla Aditya Negi.

Authorities are trying to have the road cleared and restored as soon as possible, he said.

Meanwhile, Hema Thakur, Mahila Mandal Pradhan of Ghandal village, has claimed that the road had born a visible crack for three months but authorities from PWD and NHAI covered it with mud and ignored it.
