The project involved the construction of a 9km long double tube tunnel and the upgrade of approximately 15km of National Highway One to a four lane motorway. The new tunnel was constructed at a lower elevation than the existing tunnel, reducing the travel distance between Banihal and Qazigund by 16km. SMEC was the independent engineer, responsible for onsite design review, construction supervision and quality control testing.
