The roadblock between Bji Zam and Trongsa could not be cleared as of yesterday.
More than 100 vehicles were stranded at the Bji Zam checkpost and Trongsa town; the traffic was then diverted through MHPA bypass.
The chief engineer with the Departments of Roads in Trongsa, Ugyen Dorji, said that due to continuous rainfall and falling boulders, the block could not be cleared even after blasting.
“We will continue the clearing work today,” he said.
