Government mulling three tunnels in Kashmir-The three proposed tunnels will connect Kargil, Gurez and Tangdhar, which are otherwise cut off from mainland India during winter months


Quote:
Srinagar: Government is mulling to dig three tunnels in strategic border areas of Kashmir to provide the year round connectivity to soldiers and civilians alike.

The three proposed tunnels will connect Kargil, Gurez and Tangdhar, which are otherwise cut off from mainland India during winter months.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said that Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has already agreed to conduct survey of Razdan pass next year to construct a tunnel.

The tunnel at Razdan pass will connect Gurez, a strategic valley situated on the Line of Control. Experts say that constructing the Gurez tunnel would give India an upper hand over Pakistan in the area, which is often used as an infiltration route by militants.

“Similar tunnels are also proposed for Sadhna and Zojila passes,” Abdullah said The two tunnels would connect Tanghdar and Kargil respectively.

These regions are also geographically spectacular and will prove a boon for tourism sector, once provided with year round and hassle free connectivity.

Early this year government approved 4.50 km tunnel connecting Kashmir valley with Kishtwar district of Jammu division at an estimated cost of Rs 400 crore in private public partnership with Jammu and Kashmir Bank.

+1000000000 we need 24X7X365 day connectivity with the kashmir. At the time of kargil war pakistan have cut off our supplier and Indian Army trucks have to move in the night with their headlights off so that pakistani can't see them and not destroy them with artillery shelling.

As china is building high speed rail link with pakistan to the Gwadar port to reach Gulf region. The pakistanis have already occupied high peaks to cut off kashmir from India.

That was the prime reason for kargil attack by pakistan, even after the kargil war pakistanis still occupies peak that can see and harm directly the National Highway - 1.

So, more and more link are the only option.

J&K gets Rs 190 crore for power reforms


Quote:
Srinagar: Union Power Ministry has approved Rs 190 crore Restructured-Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Program (R-APDRP) for 30 major towns of Jammu and Kashmir.

The ailing power sector of the state has been reeling under the defective transmission, revenue deficit and heavy power losses. The program is expected to help state improve its power infrastructure at par with rest of India.

State government has received a formal approval from Union Power Ministry. Under the programme the state will receive central assistance of Rs 151.99 crore whereas rest will be borne by the state.

According to State Power Development Department officials, the R-APDRP is primarily aimed at reducing Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT&C) losses and improving the quality of power delivery. The program will be completed in six years.

J&K has one of the highest Transmission and Distribution (T&D) losses in entire India. Last fiscal it was 65.78 per cent whereas this year AT&C losses have zoomed upto 72 per cent creating huge gaps between projected revenue realization and the actual revenue realized against the Power Purchase Bill.

R-APDRP is a two phased programme which will be completed in six years. It will cover urban areas, towns and cities with population of more than 30,000 souls. The Power Finance Corporation will be the nodal agency for implementing the programme.

Land acquired for four-laning of Kashmir highway

Quote:

Decks have been cleared for the four-laning of Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, the only road link between Kashmir Valley and the rest of India, with the state government facilitating the land acquisition for the purpose, officials said on Sunday. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has been informed about the land acquisition in the areas along the highway where there are plans of widening the road or construction of bridges or tunnels, a source said.
The task had been pending for the past six years.

"It was the intervention at the highest level that made the revenue authorities work hard and acquire land for four-laning of the highway," a senior official told IANS.

"The decks have been cleared. Now, it's the work of the men and machines to do rest," he added.

The 294-km highway is a nightmare for travellers as it is prone to landslides and frequent blockades during winter and rainy seasons.

Though it's double-laned, it becomes single-laned at many points, obstructing the free flow of traffic, which in turn disrupts supplies to the valley, where almost everything, from foodgrains, poultry to cars and trucks, are supplied from other states.

"Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has been personally monitoring the progress in the four-laning of the highway, and has asked the NHAI to expedite the work," the official said.

Abdullah has also asked the NHAI to set a "time frame" for the completion of work, he said.

The Uttarakhand High Court today directed Alaknanda Hydro Power Company Limited (AHPCL), a GVK group company, to seek fresh environmental clearance for its 330 Mw Srinagar hydel project from the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF). However, the court refused to stop the construction work.

A division bench of the High Court comprising Justice P C Pant and Justice B K Bist also directed the MoEF to decide the matter in three months, said the counsel of the petitioner, Ram Lal.

Lal had petitioned before the High Court that AHPCL did not seek necessary environmental clearance from MoEF for enhancing the capacity of the project from 200 Mw to 330 Mw.

However, the court rejected the petitioner’s plea to stop the construction work of the dam, saying the project could not be completed soon.

The project, which is scheduled to be commissioned in December this year, had hit a roadblock during the past two years over the issue of submergence of Dhari Devi temple.

The government had stopped the construction work of the project around the temple last year after a prolonged agitation by a section of the Sangh Parivar, including former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister

Uma Bharati, that is opposed to the shifting of the temple, which will get submerged in the dam’s reservoir to be built on the Alaknanda river.

Since Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank intends to contest the Assembly election from the Srinagar constituency, the issue had taken political dimensions with the state government setting up inquiry committees to deal with it.

GVK was given the task of completion of the Srinagar hydel project by the previous Congress government in 2006 after the project remained suspended for nearly 20 years.

Jammu and Kashmir Government is looking forward to generate 7056.50 MW power in the next ten years by developing hydropower projects across the state under various modes, said JK Minister of State for Power, Shabir Ahmed Khan.

According to him, the government is keen to harness the available 20, 000 MW hydro power potential in the state, adding that out of the identified 16, 000 MW capacity as much as 2456 MW power has already been generated. J&K government has attached significant importance to the full exploitation of hydro power potential in order to affect a major turnaround in the state's economy and power scenario, noted the minister. "Development of Hydroelectric projects requires substantial investments. The objective of rapid development of the potential cannot be met with state funding alone as there is always competing demand for State funds", he said. The minister added that the state has therefore to look at alternative investment policies. The J&K Government has already approved an implementation framework for speedy development of hydro projects under state and central sectors, joint ventures with Central Public Sector Units and private sector and under Public Private Partnership mode. The Government has recently signed a Promoters agreement to float a joint venture company to develop Pukhal Dul, Kiru and Kawar Hydro Electric Power Projects with a total capacity of 2150 MWs with JKSPDC, NHPC and PTC India, said the minister. 17 power projects, with an aggregate capacity of 1897. 76 MWs are under execution in the State under State, Central and Private Sectors, while projects with aggregate capacity of 7056.50 MWs are planned for execution in the available modes in the next ten years, he concluded.

New Bridge to Connect Punjab, HP & J&K




Quote:
Basholi/Jammu, May 22 (Scoop News) –Construction work for a permanent bridge over river Ravi to link three North Indian states- Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab will kick start tomorrow when the Chairperson of the National Advisory Council Sonia Gandhi lays the foundation stone for the project at Basohli in J&K.

The bridge will also open up new areas for development and tourism in Kathua and Doda diastricts in J&K and along Ranjit Sagar Dam. The 592 metre bridge, to be built by the Border Raods Organisation of the Ministry of Defence at a cost of Rs 145 Crores, will open up an alternative route to National Highway 1A and to the Kashmir Valley via Basholi, Bani, Bhaderwah, Kishtwar, Chhatroo and Anantnag and boost development of these areas with better connectivity.

Scheduled to be constructed by September 2014, the bridge will open up avenues for commercial mining of materials like Gypsum and Lime stone.

Indicative of the significance of the occasion, a galaxy of dignitaries including the Defence Minister AK Antony, Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare Ghulam Nabi Azad, Minister for New & Renewable Energy Dr Farooq Abdullah, the Chief Minister of J&K Shri Omar Abdullah, the Minister of State for Defence Dr MM Pallam Raju will attend the function. The Defence Secretary Shri Pradeep Kumar and the Director General Border Roads Lt Gen Ravi Shankar will also be present on the occasion.

From a technical point of view, the Basohli bridge is going to be a technological marvel. It will be a cable-stayed bridge, similar to the Second Hoogly bridge at Kolkotta, Naini Bridge at Allahabad and the Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link at Mumbai. The Basohli bridge will have a tower height of about 88 metres above deck level. The decking and the span regions will only be supported by cables. There will be 1.5 metre wide footpaths on both sides. The contract for the construction of the bridge has been awarded to M/S IRCON-SPS Construction Pvt Ltd.

It may be recalled that the Border Roads Organisation, raised in 1960, was primarily tasked to build strategic roads for the Army. It has now diversified to bridging, tunneling and building airfields.
