Patel Engineering Inaugurates Sela Tunnel Project in Arunachal Pradesh

the Sela Tunnel Project in Arunachal Pradesh
Patel Engineering Limited celebrates its 75th year with the successful inauguration of the Sela Tunnel Project in Arunachal Pradesh by Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi. Valued at ₹650 crores, the Sela Tunnel stands as a testament to India's unwavering commitment to fortifying border security and fostering regional economic growth. Under Project VARTAK of the Border Roads Organizations (BRO), the tunnel was constructed by Patel Engineering, incorporating advanced engineering techniques to overcome environmental and geographical challenges. The project includes the construction of a main tunnel T1 spanning a length of 1003.34m and a main tunnel T2 spanning a length of 1594.38m having an escape tunnel of 1584.38 m and a road spanning about 8.7 kilometers.

The project's completion was made possible by the dedicated efforts of a team comprising over 50 highly skilled engineers and a workforce exceeding 800 individuals. Despite harsh weather conditions, including temperatures dropping below -15 degrees Celsius in peak winter months, the team persevered, showcasing Patel's unwavering commitment to government objectives. Patel's commitment to the government's objectives is evident in the creation of these vital transportation routes, notably the Sela Tunnel, which stands as the world's longest bi-lane road tunnel at an elevation exceeding 13,500 feet.

Rupen Patel, Chairman & MD, Patel Engineering Limited said, “We are truly honoured to be entrusted with this prestigious project, and we extend our sincere gratitude to the Prime Minister, Shri. Narendra Modi for this opportunity and trust. The Sela Pass project holds paramount importance for India's growth, and we consider ourselves fortunate to be associated with such a pivotal initiative that aligns seamlessly with our commitment to contributing to India’s growth story. Patel Engineering is dedicated to focusing on hydropower, irrigation and tunnelling projects, leveraging our strong order book, and bringing our unparalleled expertise in infrastructure to the forefront.”

The Sela Pass Tunnel strategically epitomizes cutting-edge technology designed to surmount environmental, geographical, and geological challenges. This ambitious undertaking underscores India's commitment to narrowing the infrastructure gap and enhancing its strategic capabilities in the region. The tunnel project is a manifestation of India's significant advancements in recent years, overcoming hurdles to align with the scale of China's expansive infrastructure initiatives.
