Road projects in Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh improving travel

In recent times, road connectivity across the Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh areas have reduced the threat of accidents, and have paved the way for speedy and smooth travel.

The work on the National Highways and tunnels as declared by the Minister of Road Transport and Highways is translating into reality at a faster speed. Tunnels will be constructed worth Rs 50,000 crore, and other road transport work launched at Rs 1 lakh crore in 2022-23, which would have a catalytic impact on employment prospects.

The coming two years will be observing the expansion of the neglected faraway regions in the Union Territories. 25 huge projects comprising National Highways in the Jammu area costing Rs 11,800 crore and including 259 kilometres would boost development and cultural connection with the rest of India. In 2014, the planned road projects reached 1,695 km, but the Centre has contested itself to 2,664 km. The transport ministry is additionally prioritising eco-friendly standards and concentrating on moving to green hydrogen rather than depending on conventional fuel.

The quality measures of the construction are unmistakably at par with European road development. The high installation cost will reduce the repair requirements in the future, saving funds and building reliance on the population. The road development is additionally boosting the confidence of the hilly residents who rarely interacted with civilisation.

Another proposed tunnel at Peer Ki Gali to be constructed on the Mughal Road would provide motorable value, especially during the winter months and serve as an option to the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, which usually gets obstructed due to heavy rain and snowfall.
