PM Nawaz Sharif inaugurates Pak-China friendship tunnel

Pakistan, Sept 15 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif inaugurated the Pakistan-China Friendship Tunnels, which have been constructed over Attabad Lake in Gilgit-Baltistan. The tunnels have been constructed by the National Highway Authority (NHA) in collaboration with the China Road and Bridge Corporation to restore part of the road which had become submerged under the Attabad lake waters.

The seven-km-long five tunnels are part of the 24-km portion of the Karakoram Highway (KKH) which was damaged in 2010 due to land sliding at Attabad area in Hunza valley. Two major bridges and 78 small bridges have also been constructed on the rebuilt section of the highway, reported Radio Pakistan.

The project has been completed in a span of three years and two months. NHA officials briefed the Prime Minister on the details of the project and status of up-gradation of other parts of KKH.
