6.5 kms Chhatergalla tunnel to reduce 20 km distance

JAMMU: After a long wait of nearly 30 years, the people from Doda and Kathua districts will have an all weather double lane road as Border Roads Organisation (GREF) has given the completion target of 2017 of this prestigious Rs 600 crore Bhaderwah-Bani-Basohli road project. With a 6.5 km long tunnel at Chhatergalla through Seoj Dhar, on the eastern side of Kailash Kund pilgrimage in Bhaderwah sub division, the road once made through, would likely to open flood-gates for the tourists from Punjab, Himachal, Delhi, Haryana and other States. Even the tourists visiting to Chamba- Dalhousie and other parts of Himachal, would be attracted towards picturesque valley of Bhaderwah, known as mini-Kashmir via this link.
