Vehicles running along the East-West highway in the country have been cut off towards the Maisthan check post and Ratukhola in Mahottari district after a bridge connecting two parts of the road separated.
A middle section of the bridge along the East-West highway at Bhapsi collapsed on Friday midnight owing to the surge of water, disrupting the vehicular movement along the highway completely, and affecting normal lives. Passengers are unsure and worried as they do not know how to cross the river.
The district disaster management committee has deployed human resources to speed up rescue and relief operation at the place.
Similarly, a part of the highway has also been swept away by a flooded river at Bardibas municipality-1.
