Following landslide that totally cut off NH-29 near old KMC dumping site on August 5 morning, the PWD (NH) has begun fresh cutting of road at the landslide area and could take another 5-6 days to allow vehicular movement. 

Kohima traffic police told Nagaland Post that light vehicles were being allowed to ply along Jotsoma by-pass. Police informed that due to inclement weather, the road to Kohima via Peducha to Tsiesema remained unmotorable. However, with the improvement of weather in the last two days, the road would be inspected to see if it was motorable, police said. Dimapur traffic police informed that only light vehicles could ply the diverted road from Niuland towards Zhadima.

By-pass to remain closed on Aug 10: Jotsoma Youth Organisation (JYO) has informed by-pass would be closed for vehicular movement on August 10, 2019 from 7am till 5pm in view of proposed repair works.

In a press release, JYO president Khrieto Peseyie and secretary Rokozhalie Gwerie, however, stated that vehicle carrying school going children and students of Kohima Science College, Jotsoma and Sazolie College were exempted during the school and college hours. In case of any other emergencies, commuters could contact JYO volunteersat-- 9612161116, 9436875905, 8119962922 and 7005607282.

It also requested commuters not to litter the road side especially with plastic waste as the village has been endeavouring to keep the village plastic-free.
