Manali Leh road opens for traffic

Manali: The Border Road Organization restored vehicular traffic on the Manali-Leh highway after nine days after rebuilding the Mahe bridge which was heavily damaged in recent flash floods. The BRO created an 80 km detour to beat a critical portion of the highway which has been washed away in the recent heavy rains.

The Border Roads Organisation men worked overtime to construct the bridge at Mahe and several vehicles stranded enroute reached Manali yesterday evening, a report from Manali said.

Sources in 38 BRTF Manali, entrusted with maintenance of Manali-Sarchu stretch of Manali-Leh highway, said all vital links on the road, which were snapped due to cloudbursts, had been restored but it would take some time to restore normal traffic.
