tunnels over Attabad Lake

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif inaugurated on Monday tunnels over Attabad Lake constructed to restore the Karakoram Highway which was damaged in 2010 due to land sliding.

The five tunnels are part of a 24-kilometer long portion of the reconstructed Karakorum Highway.  Two big bridges and 78 small bridges have also been constructed.

The premier was briefed about the Attabad Tunnel project by officials of the National Highway Authority. The project was completed in a span of three years and two months.
