Hehe, pizza delivery. J/k, it looks nice, not awkward like the previous Kangoo. Nice houses too; which one is yours?

The widest tunnel... In the Netherlands we have the Drechttunnel, which has 4 tubes with 2 lanes each. I believe the Elbtunnel near Hamburg has the same. The Beneluxtunnel near Rotterdam has 5 tubes with 10 lanes in total. The Heinenoordtunnel near Rotterdam has 2 tubes with 7 lanes in total. The tunnel under Schiphol Airport has 12 lanes. Funnily enough, one of the busiest tunnels in the Netherlands, the Coentunnel has only 4 lanes without shoulders.

Do you mean sth. like the tunnel diameter?
Well, the top 4 of the widest Tunnel boring machines (TBM):
4. 14.65m: "TRUDE" for the 4th tube of the Elbtunnel in Hamburg
3. 15.43m: =detail&tx_dbnhkprojects_pi1[uid]=561&tx_dbnhkprojects_pi1[noSearch]=1]Shanghai Changjiang connection
2. approx. 19m: Bypass Sur on M30, Madrid
1. approx. 20m: Billionaire Abramovich
All designed by Herrenknecht AG

By the time the Engelbergtunnel on A81 near Stuttgart opened in 1999, it was the widest non-TBM tunnel.

The Transmanhattan Expwy (I-95) in New York is belowd grade with apartments on top. That road has 6 lanes each way. However, I don't know if it counts as a tunnel. I believe the A-5 tunnel in Madrid has 5 lanes outbound.
