Dehradun: Uttarakhand is going to become the first state in the country to get rid of the tunnel of parking trouble. There are four functional institutions in the State for tunnel parking, but its environmental challenges will also not be less. Environmentalists have termed it as a path to great destruction. The state government is starting tunnel parking to get rid of parking trouble in the hills. This parking lot is not yet anywhere in the country.  

It is the same claim that Uttarakhand will be the first state in the country to conduct such an experiment. A total of about 180 parking lots have been identified across the State, out of which 12 tunnel parking lots have been identified in the first phase in Tehri and Pauri districts. In addition to NHIDCL, the Cabinet has now made THDC, UJVNL and RVNL the functional agencies for the construction of tunnel parking.

RVNL is already working on the Rishikesh-Karanprayag railway line in the mountain. RVNL has also built several large tunnels. At the same time, UJVNL and THDC have constructed tunnels for hydropower projects. The government says that this will definitely solve the big problem of parking. There may also be many challenges for the government in getting this dream of tunnel parking on the ground. The first of these challenges is environmental clearances. The work can start only after permission from the Union Ministry of Forest Environment. Due to similar permission, many hydropower projects are stuck in the state. On the other hand, the debris generated due to the construction of these tunnels can also emerge as a big challenge. However, the government argues that the tunnels will be constructed following all the rules.
