Modi inaugurates Chenani-Nashri tunnel on Sgr-Jmu highway

Srinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday inaugurated the Chenani-Nashri tunnel on Srinagar-Jammu Highway, official sources said.
The 10.9-km long tunnel will reduce the time taken to travel between Jammu and Srinagar by shortening the distance between Chenani-Nashri from the existing 41 kms to 10.9 kms and is likely to save fuel worth nearly Rs 99 crores a year, they said.
The tunnel in Udhampur district, built with new Austrian tunnel technology, has a series of smart safety features — all functioning through a single software.
After the inauguration ceremony, the prime minister is scheduled to address a public rally in Udhampur’s Battal Ballian village.
