The Jammu and Kashmir Government has said that a proposed tunnel on the Mughal Road between Zaznar and Chattapani to keep the road open round the year, was under survey. A tunnel is proposed on the 84-km Bafliaz-Shopain road between Zaznar and Chattapani to keep the road open round the year, the State Minister for Roads and Buildings, Abdul Majeed Wani, said in the Legislative Council in Jammu on March 25.
