After massive landsides triggered by heavy rains blocked the National Highway 29 near Zubza, the main connectivity between Kohima and Dimapur since October 1, a group of volunteers from High and Nagaland 4x4 Club were seen assisting the traffic to help the commuters stuck in the highway. 

As alternate arrangement, all light vehicles proceeding towards Dimapur from Kohima and vice-versa have been directed to route via Tsiesema-10th Mile-Peducha.

The volunteers of the clubs, who have been assisting the traffic since October 3, said they came out with this idea to help when they saw commuters struggling.  They wanted to ensure that people do not suffer with shortage of ration, fuel and daily commodities. 

They stated that they did not expect anything in return but was setting a good example for the others to follow. 

They also wished that the government should recognise such clubs and groups, whenever they get the opportunity to participate in the car rally or exhibitions outside the state.  

Meanwhile, OC Traffic, M. Patton, who inspected the landslide areas, said that it was safe for public to take Tsiesema road side but if rain continues then it might not be safe to travel. 

He advised the public to be cautious as the roads have become muddy and slippery. 

He extended gratitude to the Aces High and Nagaland 4x4 Club for their assistance.  Volunteers from the clubs have been stationed in different locations and assisting the travellers. 

The OC said that the clubs have set a good example by extending their support.  He welcomed the good gesture especially from the youths and said that it should become an eye opener to others. 

A commuter extended gratitude to the volunteers for assisting him without hesitation after his vehicle  was stuck in the mud.
