Notably, Z-Morh Tunnel is under-construction 6.5 km long 2-lane road tunnel between Gagangair and Sonamarg and is named after the Z-shaped stretch of road that the tunnel will replace. 

Together with the adjacent Zojila Tunnel, it will provide all weather connectivity to Ladakh and Baltal, and will reduce the earlier 3.5 hours travel time to just 15 minutes drive. (KNS)
