This area has been marked as ‘Red Zone’ by border roads organization which has been annoying them since August last year. The non-stop round the year seeping water has made mountain above the highway boggy which is regularly coming downward with very slow pace. No remedy has been found to overcome this problem.

The organization, however, successfully made a link through the region but the traffic movement above marsh and below falling debris is not less than driving in death traps. BRO commander AK Dixit said they are doing their best to make the stretch comfortable and safe till June 2. “We have deployed a dozer at sinking zone to keep the traffic regular. We are applying every possible technique to freeze the mountain,” he told Himachal Vacation.
