Jammu-Srinagar National Highway recently inaugurated the longest bi-directional highway tunnel in Asia. Built in a record four years, it has cut down travel time between Jammu and Srinagar by 2 hours and the distance by 41 kilometres. The tunnel will save fuel worth nearly Rs 99 crores a year, so nearly Rs 27 lakh is likely to be saved per day.

The all-weather tunnel is equipped with world-class safety features. It is an excellent alternative to the highway which is closed during heavy periods of snow and rain fall. It will ensure safe and swift passage for commuters, even in adverse conditions. A control room monitors the movement of vehicles and will come to your immediate rescue in case of any emergency.
