This route was a key transportation route into the disaster zone during the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, and was referred to as a "lifeline" by rescue workers. [1] On 6 July 2011, it was damaged by mudslides and collapses, including a 400m stretch which was damaged as a result of the nearby river being diverted by a mudslide.[1]
