Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The construction work of the tunnel near Simrol on the Indore-Khandwa National Highway is likely to be completed in the next one-and-a-half years.
To avoid accidents and traffic jams on the 200 km long Indore-Khandwa National Highway, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is undertaking the construction of a 4-lane national highway in 4 packages.
After the construction of this tunnel, the distance between Indore and Khandwa will be reduced by about 10 km. Member of Parliament Shankar Lalwani arrived in Simrol on Saturday at the construction site to take stock of the construction work of a tunnel.
He went into the tunnel to understand the technology, to learn about the construction work being done by NHAI and discussed how to complete the tunnel work expeditiously.
Lalwani said the demand for the Indore-Khandwa road was pending for a long time and he had first met Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on December 12, 2019, in this context.
After that I met Gadkari several times regarding this road. I had announced the expressway in Indore, and I am satisfied with the pace of the work.
The tunnel, which is being constructed by NHAI, is a unique example of modern engineering, where development has been planned without harming the environment and ecosystem. The tunnel will make traveling on the ghat section much safer.
