    China Highest Road Tunnel
    After completing the construction work on the world's highest road tunnel costing about USD 170 million by China on the Sichuan-Tibet Highway, will shorten the time to reach Tibet by two hours. The seven-km long tunnel, situated 6,168 metre above sea level, passes through the main peak of Chola Mountain. The corridor has shortened the time from Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province, to Nagqu in Tibet by two hours, and will also result in avoiding the most dangerous section on the highway. The tunnel, with two lanes in each direction, was under construction since 2012 and will be opened to traffic next year. The current 40 km precipitous mountain highway in the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Garze takes over two hours to traverse, with dangers from avalanches and rock falls coupled with extreme cold and low oxygen level, said media report, adding that the project built at a cost of 1.15 billion yuan (USD 170 million), The highway will be able to accommodate 4,000 to 5,000 vehicles a day, as compared with 1,500 currently.
