Technicalities of operating Lowari tunnel discussed — 5 Comments

  1. T.Khan
    This is totally irrelevent and unscientific minutes of the meeting. Many questions are: Why a low grade exhaust fans are insttalled when such dangrous- poisnous & inflamable gases are accomolated.? Secondly. if oxygen difficiences are inside the tunnel then how it is possible for inflammation and Raising the temp. Of the tunnel upto 2000 degree in the presence of CO2 and CO gases. Is urnanium are exploded inside.? third if international firm are working then the standard of tunnel must be Of international quality is mere a joking with mountain community. Where were this saftey precuation before MNA chitral issue with the security personel.? Before the black toping of tunnel inside road the people spent 50 to 70 minutes within the tunnel then MalakhanD Commissioner was in which ear of elephant. So appeal to the cheif justice to take a sever action against commissioner malakhand who is reponsible to keep the life of chitrali peoples in risk before black toping of the inside tunnel road. Now the timing within tunnel is 7 minutes which is more safer travel then 60 minutes. This is beaureucratic approach to make fool the community.

  2. Hahahahahaha, what a joke, it looks that nuclear explosion is expected inside the tunnel, people of Chitral should be aware of the risk. Shame on NHA and Commissioner for such nonsense report. After investment of more than Rs. 30 billion on tunnel, this was time to open it for public, but issuing such report is mockery of public and extremely pathetic that Commissioner Malakand division issuing such faulty report which is mockery of the who administration. Whatever mentioned in the report and what scientific logic is presented in the report are totally nonsense which reflect that how incompetent our administration is which presenting such report.

  3. These are lame excuses to tease, humiliate and punish people of Chitral. If the tunnel is so dangerous whey it has been constructed. It is also to mention here that these lame excuses are presented to fool people, because if round the clock traffic is allowed in the tunnel there will be neither rush of vehicles nor smoke. It takes more 20 minute interval for crossing vehicle in the tunnel. When vehicles are stopped and not allowed then crossing of the tunnel by number of vehicles create smoke and problem. In case of opening there will be single vehicle to cross the tunnel in 20 or 30 minutes, then there will be no smoke.

    • Valid point. they want to maintain their chaudhryhood at tunnel at the cost of common travellers or simply they think the public do not know anything.

  4. What a bundle of crap these excuses are. As if this is the first tunnel in the world with all the world’s oxygen and exhaust problems. There are numerous tunnels longer than this and at higher altitudes than this operating 24 hours in the world. The Atta Abad tunnel in Hunza is an example. They never have oxygen problem and all kind of fancy names of poisonous gases mentioned in the report.
    All excuses for closing the tunnel for two hours are bullshit. If safety is the only consideration we should close roads also for two hours so that accidents are minimised. Even mention of pregnant women has been made which is a bag of foul crap and only Chitralis can accept such nonsense. Any other people would have slapped such excuses on the face of the excuse giving authorities.
    The crux of the matter is authorities do not want Chitralis to benefit from the tunnel as it is meant to be- that is all!. The two way tunnel is even restricted to one way traffic. They forgot to mention an excuse for that.
