Galung La Tunnel to be completed in June
14:07, March 12, 2010  

Construction of the Galung La Tunnel, a tunnel linking Medog County in southeastern Tibet's Nyingchi Prefecture with the outside world, is expected to be finished this June.

Crossing through the Kangrigarbo La Mountain, the Galung La Tunnel is the key project of the Medog Highway with very complicated geographical conditions.

By now, the 3.3-km tunnel has been advanced for 2,305 meters against rough conditions.

After its completion, the tunnel will not only greatly lower the cost of materials needed to building of the Medog Highway, but also quicken up the construction schedule.
