Lower Chenab Canal Construction Railway

This canal, originally known as the 'Chenab Canal' was constructed from 1892 with its headwoerks at Khanki. Renamed the 'Lower Chenab Canal' as a consequence of the construction from 1904-05 of the 'Upper Chenab Canal' as part of the 'Triple Canal Project' [1]..
