Bangla Hunt Desk: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Atal Tunnel in Himachal Pradesh on Saturday. Chief Engineer KP Purushottam said, ‘This steady tunnel is the result of 10 years of hard work of the Border Roads Organization. This tunnel is a living example of a self-reliant India. ”
Note that the world's longest tunnel, the tunnel that connects Manali to Leh, has finally been completed in 10 years. This tunnel was supposed to be built in six years. But it took four more years to build this tunnel. The solid tunnel is more than 10 thousand feet long. This tunnel will reduce the distance from Leh to Manali by 48 km.

This tunnel is the longest highway tunnel in the world. This tunnel has CCTV cameras installed every 60 meters. Not only that, inside the tunnel there is an emergency exit path at intervals of 500 meters. To build this tunnel, BRO's engineers and staff have to face many problems. Because it has become very difficult to work there in the winter season.
The biggest advantage of this tunnel will be the army. It will be much easier to take tools and rations to Ladakh through the tunnel. The tunnel has been constructed in such a way that 3,000 four-wheelers or 1,500 trucks can pass through it at a time.
