Double-tube four-lane tunnel to open soon

A double-tube four-lane tunnel will soon be opened on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway between Qazigund and Banihal. Most mechanical, civil and electrical works are reportedly completed, and the toll plazas on both terminals are also ready. Only security devices are pending because of the Covid-19 limitations on flights as they are being procured from Singapore. Setting up of various facilities inside the tunnel, including ventilation and CCTVs, have already begun. The mega project would be open for the public within weeks, reducing the travel distance on the highway by 16 km.
