Guwahati: The Deputy Commissioner of East Jaintia Hills announced on Monday that the Sonapur Tunnel has been opened for two-way traffic and the debris has been cleared.

Torrential rains continue to lash Meghalaya as Sonapur Tunnel in the East Jaintia Hills district was hit by another round of landslides on Monday.

As per official, apart from a few areas where the road has been damaged and only one lane of traffic is permitted, traffic is moving smoothly throughout NH06.

The district administration has asked the commuters to avoid unnecessary travelling across this route so that the essential commodities vehicles heading to Barak Valley and adjoining states can be expedited.

After being cleaned up on Sunday, the Sonapur Tunnel witnessed massive landslide on Monday.

Meanwhile, landslides were reported in Meghalaya’s East Jaintia Hills, West Jaintia Hills, and East Khasi Hills districts during the 48 hours.
