Mangan-Singtam Highway opens for traffic

MANGAN, August 4: The Mangan-Singtam Highway opened for traffic today.
GREF labourers took about seven days to remove the rubbles and mud brought down by the heavy rains last week on the road at Mile 4.
The road was blocked for over a week when landslides triggered by heavy rains hit the iron bridge over Barkhola, Mile 4 at Lower Mangshila.
The Siliguri and Singtam taxi services had been plying from Sankalang via Pheedang light vehicle bridge.
