The Dosarka-Dagshai road has once again become risky with massive erosion of the hill below following incessant rains in the last few days.
Since the hill has been excavated for four-laning of the National Highway, a sizeable portion eroded following last week’s rains. This has rendered travelling on the Dosarka-
Dagshai road risky. Gaping crevices had appeared on the road. Driving on a stretch of at least one-km has become risky.
This was the second such occasion when the cave-in has occurred. Earlier too, this road had caved in due to the four-laning work. It had taken months for the restoration of the road.
A visit to the site revealed that the alignment of the Dosarka-Dagshai road leading to this cantonment town has been badly disturbed due to the excavation work of the hill below. Though as many as three JCB machines have been pressed into service to clear the debris and undertake repair work the ongoing rains have made the task arduous.
