Sost, May 15: An important road in the Kirmin village of Chipursan Valley, Gojal, has been eroded due to toe cutting caused by the Chipursan River. The local people have said that in the summers when the water flow in the river increases the road will be completely destroyed and a large number of people will not be disconnected from lower parts of the valley.
Erosion has also threatened the Noorabad locality of Kirmin village, which is one of the largest settlements of the Chipursan valley. Fertile agricultural land and houses are at the risk of being flooded, the locals said.
They said that several complaints have been lodged with the authorities but no action has been taken in this regard.
The local people, including members of the Chipursan Local Support Organization have demanded of the district administration to build protective walls beneath the road to contain the erosion and save the road.
