The trek to Kashmir may soon be a smooth journey. India’s longest road tunnel, the 9 km long Chenani – Nashri Tunnel is being built under the lower Himalayan mountain range to connect Chenani with Nashri near Udhampur, in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. A number of state-of-the-art tunnels are being dug through the Pir Panjal ranges, among others, for easy roadways and a pioneering railway line both of which will give easy access to the valley. The 288-km distance between Jammu and Srinagar will be reduced to 238 km. Twin tunnels with inbuilt escape routes in case of snow storm or blizzards are being provided through Pir Panjal from Banihal to Quazigund at an elevation of 1.8 km. The main tunnel will be connected to an escape tunnel via pedestrian passages over 300 meters and vehicular crossings every 1.2 kilometer.
