Nashri-Chenani tunnel closed for formal inauguration

Srinagar: After completion of its successful test-run, authorities have closed the 9.2-km long Nashri-Chenani tunnel for its formal inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 2, official sources said on Friday.
Built at a cost of Rs 7,350 crore, the state-of-the-art tunnel has facilities for allowing mobile phones connectivity and others while passing through it.
It has special vents to keep the air inside fresh and smoke-free.
The commissioning of the tunnel that connects the Ramban and Udhampur districts of the Jammu region will save over two hours of travel time between Srinagar and Jammu as it by-passes the 41-km long Nashri-Patnitop-Kund stretch of the road.
