China Building New 'Tunnels' For Winter At Border Hotspot Doklam

November 9th 2020, 5:33

China has stepped up its road construction activity in the Doklam plateau to ensure that all-weather access is maintained in the region, where India and China were involved in a nearly 70-day stand-off in 2017, indicates a satellite image accessed by NDTV. The August 2019 image here is of an over-ground 'tunnel' which shelters part of the key northern access route through the high-altitude Merug La pass.

A satellite image from October seen by this correspondent, indicates that Chinese construction workers have extended the length of the 'tunnel'' on this stretch to 500 metres.
