Local activists have reported fresh cracks appearing on the road used to transport pilgrims from Joshimath to Badrinath during the yatra season. The Border Roads Organisation is repairing the highway between Joshimath and Marwari, while the Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining the road connecting Narasingh temple and Badrinath.
As preparations for the annual Char Dham yatra in Uttarakhand begin, concerns about the safety of the pilgrimage have emerged due to fresh cracks appearing on the road connecting Narasingh temple in subsidence-hit Joshimath and Badrinath, according to local activists.
The road, which serves as a bypass of the Badrinath highway leading to the Himalayan temple, is used to transport pilgrims from Joshimath to Badrinath during the yatra season. However, cracks on the road have led to concerns about the safety of the journey for the pilgrims.
"Fresh cracks have appeared on the road over the past three days," said Kamal Raturi, a spokesman for the Joshimath Bachao Sangharsh Samiti (JBSS), a local activist group. The Public Works Department, Uttarakhand, is responsible for maintaining the road.
