5 new tunnels to ease up traffic in Himachal

Geo-Consult in a joint venture with RITES (Rail India Techno Economic Services) and Bangalore-based Secon company has received a go ahead from the Himachal government to prepare a detailed project report to build 5 new tunnels and double lane Dhailli and Kangra tunnel.The biggest tunnel (7.5kms) will be dug under the Swarghat hills; this tunnel will reduce the distance between Chandigarh and Bilaspur by 16kms. While the purposed Kharapathar tunnel would be smaller but it will reduce the distance between Shimla and Rohru by 20kms!

Rest of the three tunnels will be built in Shimla in an attempt to ease traffic congestions in the city.
