Prime Minister Modi inaugurates world’s longest ‘Atal Tunnel

  The Atal Tunnel is the longest highway tunnel in the world.  The 9.02 km long tunnel will keep Manali connected to the Lahaul Spiti Valley throughout the year.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the strategically important Atal Tunnel at Rohtang in Himachal Pradesh on 03 October 2020.  The Atal Tunnel is the longest highway tunnel in the world.  Due to this tunnel, the distance between Manali and Leh will be reduced by 46 kilometers and travel time will also be reduced by four to five hours.

 

 Prime Minister Modi has inaugurated the world’s longest highway tunnel ‘Atal Tunnel’.  Now this tunnel will open for the movement of common people.  Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur were also present on the occasion.  This tunnel is not far from the border of India and China, so it is also very important strategically.

 

 What did the Prime Minister say?

Prime Minister Modi said that today not only Atal ji’s dream has been fulfilled, today the decades-old wait of crores of people of Himachal Pradesh is over.  I am fortunate to have the opportunity to launch the Atal Tunnel today.

 About Atal Tunnel

The Atal Tunnel is the longest highway tunnel in the world.  The 9.02 km long tunnel will keep Manali connected to the Lahaul Spiti Valley throughout the year.  Earlier, the valley was cut off from the rest due to heavy snowfall for about six months.  The tunnel has been built at an altitude of about three thousand meters above sea level with state-of-the-art specialties among the Pir Panjal mountain range of the Himalayas.

 

 The southern portal of the Atal Tunnel is built at a height of 3,060 meters, 25 kilometers from Manali, while the northern portal is located at a height of 3,071 meters near Taling, Sisu village in Lahaul Valley.  The design of the Atal tunnel has been designed for three thousand cars and 1500 trucks per day, in which the maximum speed of vehicles will be 80 kilometers per hour.

 The foundation was laid in the Vajpayee government

The Vajpayee government had decided to construct this strategically important tunnel under the Rohtang Pass.  The foundation stone of the approach road was laid on 26 May 2002 on the southern portal of the tunnel.  In December 2019, the Modi government decided to name the tunnel as Atal Tunnel in honor of the former Prime Minister.
