Thimphu, November 04: The government has asked the public transport entrepreneurs to halt all their services in Thimphu and major highways until the coronation celebrations are completed.

The initiative was taken to avoid chaotic traffic problem in Thimphu. The city will not see any transportation for the next few days – public or private.

Major highways will also be cleared, where the buses of Bhutan Post will be ferrying people from few districts, near to Thimphu, to participate in the coronation functions.

The transportation halt is likely to cause difficulty for people traveling for their personal business.

The government had been practicing the vehicular movement ban since few weeks under the banner to help decrease the daily consumption of fuels and protect environmental pollution cause by the carbon emission from vehicles. Bhutan News Services
