Micro tunneling: The most most effective way to solve road construction/maintenance problems in mountain areas

Published on: 02/10/2020 | Comments: 2 comments 

CHITRAL: Construction and maintenance of roads in Chitral has forever been a problem and even today, with all the latest technology and machinery available, we are still stuck up with primitive methods of road construction. Maintenance of roads is a big problem even after the road has been made.

With latest equipment, micro tunnels ranging from a few hundred meters to a couple of kilometers can be dug all along the road to solve the maintenance problem of the roads once for ever.

As a case in point , The road from Timergara to Dir is winding and rewinding with bends and curves all along making a very short distance a long ones due to the sharp bends. If micro tunnels are made to eliminate all the sharp bends, not only will the distance shorten greatly, but fuel consumption/import of Pakistan will reduce a lot.

Similarly the roads in the main valleys of Chitral and GB can greatly be shortened and made maintenance free by making micro and mini tunnels and using steel bridges to shorten the gorges. The best part about it is that making a tunnel nowadays is more easy and cost effective than building and maintaining a mountain road. ..CN report, 02 Oct 2020

  1. Nothing good will happen for the people. Never. Not until people, all people will see the sense in coming together to join hands with each other to organise a Union of the people, by the people, for the people and then work for their own common welfare and security.
    We the people need to go back to their primitive but effective ways of coming together regularly in the localities where we live. Come together to organise the foundation of our Union.
    This coming together and exchanging ideas shall help people to do the best for their welfare and security.
    While coming together it will help people greatly if they abandon the very profound temptation of Satan i.e. arrogance, boastfulness, one upmanship. Arrogance is a very commonly found habit among the people yet very deadly for the good human relations. Without abandoning this deadely habit, peopel will find hard to be able to unite.

  2. Very good idea but who cares for things like this or other good ideas to build the country..?
