Shinkun La construction to begin

The Border Roads Organisation marked its 65th Raising Day in May this year. According to the Defence Ministry, the BRO will soon commence the construction of the 4.10-km long Shinkun La Tunnel. Once completed, this will become the world’s highest tunnel at 15,800 ft by passing Mila Tunnel in China at 15,590 ft. In his address on the Raising Day, Defence Secretary, Giridhar Aramane lauded the BRO for fulfilling its responsibilities successfully in inhospitable terrain and tough weather conditions. Aramane urged the BRO to infuse latest technology and techniques for faster completion of projects through which human efforts will be reduced and utilised more efficiently.
