Still under construction, the Chenani-Nashri tunnel is going to become the longest road tunnel in India after completion. The 9.2 km long road tunnel is situated in Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir. The other name of this splendid tunnel is Patnitop Tunnel. It is one of the longest tunnels in Asia. It will reduce the distance from Jammu to Srinagar and reduce traffic jams on NH-1A that occur due to snowfall and avalanche in winter at Patnitop. In addition to the main road tunnel, there will be a smaller parallel escape tunnel for emergency services and extraction of smoke and persons in case of fire and accident.
