Another landslide occurred on the Yamunotri National Highway near Rana Chatti on Friday, blocking the movement of large vehicles. The movement of large vehicles has come to a halt due to the collapse of the wall between Sayanachatti and Ranachatti. Due to the collapse of the wall their big vehicles that reached the Yamunotri Dham got stuck. There because of the big vehicles, long queues were formed on both sides of the highway. There by 12 o’clock, the movement of small vehicles has started. More than 300 buses are stuck in the direction of Janki Chatti due to the blockade of movement.
Barkot Sub-Collector Shalini Negi said that after the opening of the road, due to excessive vehicular movement, there was a landslide again near Rana Chatti. Due to this the movement of large vehicles has been stopped. Due to this, there is a traffic jam on the highway.
On Wednesday evening, near Ranachatti, 25 km before Yamunotri Dham, 15 meters of the highway was submerged due to rain. The highway was restored after 25 hours on Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, more than four thousand passengers were accommodated at different convenient places. Traffic is completely closed on Yamunotri Highway due to repair work. The Executive Engineer of NH said that the wall is being given by installing wire crates
