, Oct 07: Union Minister of Road Transport and Highway, Nitin Gadkari on Saturday said that a 250-metre viaduct has been completed in Jammu and , which along with Maroge tunnel will reduce the travelling time and bypass slide-prone areas on Srinagar-Jammu highway.
Gadkari said in a post on X, In Jammu and Kashmir, we have successfully completed the construction of a 250-meter viaduct (2-lane) in conjuction with a 395-meter (2-lane) Maroge tunnel, at an estimated cost of Rs. 82 Crores.

This infrastructure is situated along with Ramban to Banihal section of NH-44.

The 645-meter segment, as part of the larger project, will not only shorten the travel distance by 200 meters, reducing steep gradients, but also provide an alternative route bypassing hte well-known sita Ram Passi slide area. Furthermore, it facilitates the smooth flow of vehicles, bypassing the challenging Marog Area gradients.
Under the visional leadership of Hon'ble PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji, we steadfastly uphold our commitment to delivering exceptional highway infrastructure to Jammu and Kashmir. This transformative development not only contributes to the regions's economic growth but also enhances its appeal as a premier tourist destination.
