2-wheelers to not be permitted through Chenani-Nashri Tunnel
Chenani-Nashri Tunnel on Jammu-Srinagar national highway which is soon going to be thrown open for traffic might not allow two wheelers.
In a report by amarujala, for the time being only 4-wheelers will be permitted through the tunnel.
Reportedly, PM Narendra Modi is going to inaugurate the tunnel on 2 April 2017.
Amarujala reports that there are two-lanes, 13 mtr in diameter and a 6 mtr parallel escape route. The straight tunnel has been connected with 29 cross- passages, each at a distance of 300 mtr.
Considering all the design challenges, speed limit for 4-wheelers will be fixed. Meanwhile, 2- and 3- wheelers might now be allowed through the tunnel.
