As per the latest news reports, 3.5km of the 8.8km long Rohtang Tunnel has been completed, which at least in my view, makes it extremely difficult for the project to stick to its 2015 deadline.
A 3.5-km stretch of the 8.8-km-long tunnel below the 3,978-metre Rohtang Pass has been completed so far, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said here Friday. The tunnel is aimed at ensuring all-weather connectivity to Keylong in Lahaul and Spiti district of the state, he said. "To ensure round-the-year connectivity to the people of Lahaul, efforts are afoot to complete the Rohtang tunnel project as soon as possible," Virbhadra Singh said at a public rally here.
