PM inaugurates Atal Tunnel in Himachal Pradesh

Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi inaugurated the strategically important, all-weather Atal Tunnel in Himachal Pradesh, today. The tunnel connects Manali to the Lahaul-Spiti valley and cuts down the travel time to Leh, Ladakh by up to five hours. The move is also expected to give new strength to the country’s border infrastructure and promote world-class border connectivity. The nine-km-long tunnel has been designed for a traffic density of 3,000 cars and 1,500 trucks per day, each of which can travel at a maximum speed of 80-kmph.
