Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government
plans to construct a tunnel at Vailoo on the just-opened
Anantnag-Kishtwar road to reduce the distance between the two
places and facilitate tourists, especially Amarnath pilgrims.

State Roads Minister G M Saroori today said more
facilities would be created at different spots along the route
for the convenience of travelers.

Saroori, who yesterday inaugurated the road built at Rs
4.50 crore, said the road linking Anantnag in south Kashmir
and Kishtwar district in Jammu could boost religious tourism
and improve the economy of the area.

The minister laid the foundation of a rest house and
shelter shed at Sinthantop, 70 kms from here.
