Fresh bids invited for Zojila Tunnel, Ladakh road
01 Jul 2020
The government has invited fresh bids for building the Zojila Tunnel in Jammu and Kashmir and a road from the under-construction Z-Morh Tunnel to the Zojila Tunnel in Ladakh. These strategic projects aim to provide round-the-year connectivity to Ladakh.
Both these projects will now be funded by the government in the EPC mode at an estimated cost of Rs.44.30 bn exclusive of GST, as per the
bid document. While the government aims to complete the 18.47 km connecting road between the two tunnels by 2023, a six-year-deadline has been fixed to complete the 14.15-km-long bi-directional tunnel across the Zojila Pass from Srinagar to Leh.
