The Indian Railway Construction Company (IRCON) has achieved a breakthrough in the construction of an escape tunnel in Jammu and Kashmir. The tunnel is being constructed under the Zoji La pass, which is the main route connecting the Union Territory of Ladakh with the rest of the country.
The tunnel is being constructed as part of the Zoji La-Drass-Kargil-Leh Railway line, which is a key project being undertaken by IRCON. The railway line will provide an all-weather connectivity to the strategically important Union Territory of Ladakh.
The breakthrough in the construction of the tunnel is a major milestone in the execution of the project. With this, IRCON has become the first Indian company to construct a tunnel under the Zoji La pass.
The construction of the tunnel is a complex engineering feat, which has been made possible by the use of the latest tunnel boring technology. The tunnel is being constructed in a geologically sensitive area and is subject to extreme weather conditions.
The successful construction of the tunnel will provide a major boost to the economic development of the Union Territory of Ladakh. It will also promote tourism in the region by providing better connectivity.
