THIS YEAR MY INDIAN GOVT HAS LAUNCHED A CHENANI-NASHRI (J&K) TUNNEL,WHICH IS ALL WEATHER TUNNEL.

THIS TUNNEL HAS BROUGHT MY NATION INTO THE LIST OF HAVING LONGEST HIGHWAY TUNNEL IN ASIA, AND THE WORLD 6th TUNNEL TO HAVE TRANSVERSE VENTILATION SYSTEM WHICH WILL PROVIDE FRESH AIR TO PASSENGER. IT TOOK 2 YEARS TO GET THIS WORK COMPLETE.

THIS TUNNEL IS 9.2 KM ON THE JAMMU-SRINAGAR, NH 44 (NATIONAL HIGHWAY), WHICH WILL REDUCE TRAVEL TIME FROM JAMMU TO SRINAGAR AND SAVE FUEL WORTH OF NEARLY Rs 99 crores A YEAR.
   
CHENANI-NASHRI TUNNEL IS A PART OF National Highway Authority of India's (NHAI's) PROJECT, WHICH IS SITUATED AT AN ALTITUDE OF 1,200 METERS.,DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO PLACE IS JUST GOING TO BE 10.9 KM, INSTEAD OF THE EXISTING 41 KM.

REPORTS ARE THAT AMBUJA CEMENT SUPPLIED 3.17L TONNES OF CEMENT FOR THIS TUNNEL AND 2,519 crore OF RUPEES WERE SPENT TO CONSTRUCT IT.

FOR PASSENGER SAFETY,CONTROL ROOM WILL MONITOR THE MOVEMENT OF THE VEHICLES AND COME TO IMMEDIATE RESCUE IN CASE OF EMERGENCY.
