One-way traffic was restored on the Chandigarh-Manali highway

after almost 23 hours by the district administration today

The restoration of traffic came as a big relief for thousands of commuters

who had been stuck on the highway since Sunday evening

Initially, the road was blocked

between Mandi and Kullu for three hours after a flash flood at Khotinala

on the highway on Sunday evening.

Thereafter, major landslides occurred between Mandi and Pandoh, blocking the highway completely

ue to darkness and heavy landslides, the restoration work could not be taken up during night.
