Megha Engineering Zojila Tunnel
Hyderabad-based Megha Engineering and Infrastructure Limited (MEIL) has achieved a breakthrough in the all-weather Zojila Tunnel construction project in the Jammu Kashmir-Ladakh region.

The project was awarded to MEIL in October 2020, on EPC model. The total length of the project is 32 kilometres and is divided into two parts.

Part I of the project includes major bridges and two tunnels. It is 18 km long and connects Sonamarg and Baltal. In a breakthrough, both the tubes of tunnel one (T1) have been excavated amid harsh weather conditions. Tube 1, which is 472 metres in length, was daylighted on November 4, while the 448-metre tube 2 was daylighted on November 22.

Work on tunnel 2, containing two tubes of 2 kilometres each, is going on in full swing and will achieve daylighting around April 2022. Construction work on Part II of the project, which is the 13.3 Km long Zojila main tunnel, is also going on in full swing.

Once entirely completed, the all-weather tunnel project will connect Srinagar to Ladakh which currently faces connectivity issues, especially during winters. It will reduce travel time between the two places by up to five hours.
