R and C Infraengineers Pvt Ltd got project for REHABILITATION AND UP-GRADATION Road including 260 Mtr Tunnel. in Jammu
Up-Gradation OF Road In Jammu
New road project for rehabilitation and upgradation in jammu. The project is estimated at around 16Cr.
The Jammu National Highway is the northernmost segment of NH 44 (formerly NH 1A before the renumbering of all national highways). It runs from Srinagar in the Kashmir Valley southward to the city of Jammu.
It is one of the two road links (the other being the Mughal Road) that connects the Kashmir Valley with the rest of India. The traffic on the highway is controlled by two control rooms, one in Srinagar and the other in Jammu.
The highway lies in the Kashmir valley for the first 68 km (up to Qazigund), then passes through a series of mountains up to Udhampur.
In the mountains, the highway is often closed for days during winter due to heavy snowfall and the resulting landslides and avalanches
UPGRADATION AND REHABILATION
The government of Jammu and Kashmir maintains and improves the highway. At many sites, new and straighter roadbeds make the journey more comfortable and shorter.
Notably, tunnels, such as the Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee Tunnel and the Banihal Qazigund Road Tunnel have reduced the distance between Jammu and Srinagar (formerly 295 km) by about 40 km and will minimize winter closures.
Notable attractions along the route are the mountaintop park at Patnitop and the town of Kud with its sweets shops that make “desi ghee patisa“. These are reached by following the old NH 44 rather than taking the Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee Tunnel.
