Kohima Oct 10 : The National Highway-29 continued to remain blocked by heavy landslides at the old KMC dumping site near Sesu-Zubza area of Kohima district, affecting vehicular movement and creating a shortage of vegetables, fish, egg and some other commodities.

The NH 29 is the lifeline for Nagaland and Manipur since all essential commodities including motor fuel for both the states are carried through this road.The trucks and tankers carrying commodities are left stranded at Peducha Check Gate and Khuzama Check Gate on the highway since October 06 last.

Movement of heavy vehicles has come to a complete halt, but light vehicles are being diverted through an alternative route. Despite tireless efforts put in by PWD (NH) division to restore the Dimapur-Kohima road, there was no result so far, the sources said.(UNI)
