Flyover at Solan in Himachal collapses: Kalka-Shimla Highway closed

Flash floods and landslides have disrupted life across Himachal Pradesh past few days. Two people died in Kullu. Apart from Shimla highway, Mandi-Kullu highway is also closed. Vehicles and travellers to the hill State are stranded.

SOLAN (Himachal Pradesh), Aug 12: The flyover at Solan collapsed in heavy rain on Thursday. Two cars plying on the road below the flyover on the Kalka-Shimla Highway were damaged as the debris fell over them. No one was injured. The National Highway has been closed to traffic.

A 50-metre stretch on the newly constructed four-lane highway caved in in the afternoon. The mishap occurred at Shamlech village. Following the incident, the highway has been closed. The road leading to the flyover had collapsed. Cracks were noticed a few days ago.

There have been widespread rain and landslides throughout Himachal Pradesh in the past few days.

"There's been massive rain in Himachal since last night. All deputy commissioners have been put on alert to report about the damages. There have been infrastructure losses in Kullu and Mandi areas," said Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur.

Two people died in Kullu - Chavelu Devi (55) and Kritika (17) - when their house at Khadel was caught in a landslide in the morning. In Deuthi village 10 shops and three vehicles were washed away in flash floods. Mandi-Kullu highway has also been blocked because of the landslides. Chamba is inaccessible.
