HP bans plying of non Himachali vehicles to Rohtang
Traffic jam on Manali Rohtang road
Plying of vehicles registered outside Himachal has been banned on ecologically fragile Manali-Rohtang highway from Saturday. The HP government has issued strict directions on Friday to reduce jam problems and minimize possibilities of accident on this congested highway.
Kullu deputy commissioner BM Nanta said the non HP vehicles would only be allowed to reach up to Kothi, 16 kilometers from Manali but their movement beyond this place has been restricted completely. “If any vehicle from outside HP wants to go beyond Rohtang pass (Lahaul-Spiti and Ladakh), he will have to get permission from SDM Manali. If anyone ignores the directions, he would be penalized,” DC said.
According to DC, the highway would remain closed for all vehicles including HP registered vehicles on every Tuesday like before.
