NewsHead.in reported “With Cabinet giving green signal to Zojila Pass tunnel project worth Rs 6,089 crore, the travel time between Srinagar and Leh will come down to 15 minutes from current 3.5 hours”

Though TimesOfIndia later issued a Corrigendum:  An earlier version of this agency story wrongly mentioned that the travel time between Srinagar and Leh would be reduced to 15 minutes. The proposed tunnel would reduce the travel time of crossing Zojila Pass from 3.5 hours to 15 minutes. The error is regretted.

Srinagar to Leh in 15 minutes The full Truth:

  1. The proposed tunnel would reduce the travel time of crossing Zojila Pass from 3.5 hours to 15 minutes.
  2. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, gave its approval to the construction, operation and maintenance of 2-lane bi-directional Zojila Tunnel with Parallel Escape (Egress) Tunnel excluding approaches on Srinagar-Leh section connecting NH-1A at Km 95 and at Km 118 in Jammu and Kashmir on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) mode.
  3. The project will be implemented by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRT&H) through the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDCL) and is expected to be completed in seven years.
  4. Zojila pass is situated at an altitude of 11,578 feet on the Srinagar-Kargil-Leh National Highway which remains closed during winters (December to April) due to heavy snowfall and avalanches cutting off Leh-Ladakh region from Kashmir.
