A massive landslide has washed away a major portion of a highway in Arunachal Pradesh, disrupting road connectivity with Dibang Valley, a district bordering China.

The incident occured on National Highway-313 between Hunli and Anini towns.

Arunachal CM Pema Khandu has directed administration to restore the connectivity expeditiously.

In a tweet, CM wrote, "Disturbed to learn the inconvenience being caused to commuters due to the extensive damage to the highway between Hunli and Anini. Instructions have been issued to restore the connectivity at the earliest as this road connects Dibang Valley to the rest of the country".

On Wednesday night, the Dibang Valley's Deputy Commissioner issued an advisory asking people to avoid travelling to the road till it is restored and “rainfall returns to normalcy". He said that the restoration will take at least three days.

“The district administration has deployed workers and adequate machinery to repair the road on a war footing. It will take a couple of days to restore traffic movement," Anini additional deputy commissioner (ADC) Dhurbajyoti Borah said.

He, however, said that efforts were being made so that small vehicles could ply on the road by Thursday evening.
