Longest Road Tunnel in Jammu and Kashmir
India’s longest road tunnel, which will cut the distance between Jammu and Srinagar by 30 km, will be completed on Monday with National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) engineers drilling a hole through the final section of the 9.2-km tunnel between Chenani and Nashri in Jammu and Kashmir.

Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari will be present during the final blast ceremony of the tunnel, which will reduce traffic snarls that occur due to snowfall and avalanche in the winter at Patnitop on National Highway-1A.

Work on the tunnel started on May 23, 2011. The tunnel, connecting Chenani in Udhampur with Nashri in Ramban district, is being built at a cost of over Rs 2,500 crore. It will also reduce the existing road distance between two points on the highway from 41 km to 10.89 km. It will start from next year
