It's not listed very well (only by country and length) but using the subregion you can narrow down individual cities to make lists.

There has been lots of talk with what to do with the Gardiner in Toronto in the past few years. Several options have been kicked around, including replacing the Gardiner with a tunnel, or simply reconstructing the Gardiner as an at-grade urban boulevard. Unfortunately, neither of those options are all that realistic (in my opinion at least). Tunnelling through this area of the city would be very difficult (the Gardiner is built on landfill), and there is simply no way to match the existing road capacity with any type of urban boulevard.

Cheers.

Well yeah, the North-South Bypass Tunnel is pointless unless they do the Airport Link. And the Airport Link is really good. It's killing two birds('roads' that have become parking lots) with one stone(tunnel).

The Northern Link would be very good.

The East-West Link isn't really that necessary.

yeah it's called the Burnley Tunnel and was completed in 1999 as part of the citylink motorway project. I just checked the facts and it's actually 3400m long, and is 3 lanes.

Rome Pineta Sacchetti tunnel (Giovanni XXIII) is 3.5 km long

It was completed few months ago (Rome municipality says it is Europe longest urban road-tunnel... but I don't know if it is true; politicians often exagerate... )
