Darjeeling: With 8 days of incessant rainfall, the Kurseong Darjeeling stretch of the National Highway 55 has been affected. However, the National Highway 10 to Sikkim opened up on Friday evening. Meanwhile, a land slip occurred below the Thoteykhola culvert on National Highway 10 at Tung around 8 km from Kurseong. The culvert has stated sinking as a result. Heavy vehicles have been stopped from plying owing to this and the road is open to one-way traffic for light vehicles.
