Itanagar: Surface communication to Dibang
Valley district in Arunachal Pradesh remain disrupted for the
past few days following landslides, officials said Monday.

Anini-Roing road remain cut off from rest of the state
since April 6 due to major landslides at various points
triggered by torrential rains for the last couple of weeks.

The bridge over Deopani river which was swept away in
December last year is yet to be constructed to restore
communication, sources informed.

Heavy landslides occurred at many locations, including
Endulin Nallah, Mayodia, 17-camp, 83-camp. The whole 120 km
stretch of road between Mayudia and Endulin has been hit by
landslides and it is feared that the situation may aggravate
further if the downpour continues for few more days.

Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has pressed its men
and machineries into service. However, considering the massive
landslides in many locations, the restoration of road link may
take some more time, sources said.

Deputy Commissioner Abu Tayeng has been personally
monitoring the situation and is in constant touch with the
concerned authorities for immediate restoration of road
communication, sources added.
