Traffic resumed on an international highway in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region on Wednesday, 30 hours after the road was damaged by landslides, according to officials.
The No. 318 National Highway, from regional capital Lhasa to Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, reopened a previously closed section in Zham township, Nyelam county, under the prefecture of Xigaze, at 7 p.m., said Zhao Chun, an official with the prefecture's highway management bureau.
The road was damaged by landslides that started about 8 a.m. on Tuesday. No casualties were reported.
As heavy rocks falling onto the road had blocked the route, armed traffic police and machinery operators were required to join the repair work, according to Zhao.
Heavy rainfall has hit large parts of southern China, bringing risks of landslides.
