In two different incidents, the movement of vehicles at Nashik-Mumbai highway near Kasara Ghat and railway traffic on the Kasara railway line were affected due to landslide.
On Sunday around 11pm, the Kasara police received information about a landslide in Kasara Ghat on the Mumbai-Nashik National Highway. The police, despite a lack of enough personnel at night, tried to manage the situation. "A team of officials managed traffic with the help of torches and shifted it to a single lane. Later the National Highways Authority sent a team to clear the road with the help of JCBs, which was completed at 5am,"said Kasara highway police officers.
Later, around 6am, a landslide took place near one of the lines at the Kasara railway track.
A railway officer, requesting anonymity, said, " We have shifted traffic from down line to middle line and the up line is already running properly. Other lines are intact and railway service is running efficiently."
A team of railway officials and villagers is trying to clear the area.
In another incident, two houses in Kasara Shivaji Nagar collapsed on Monday morning; however, no injuries were reported and the families were given shelter at the zilla parishad school nearby.
