Yeah, yeah... Dead thread is dead... Then again, it is of interest, given the fact that MANY highways and motorways Pass through mountain ranges, or under waterways (rivers, lakes and oceans) So let's see some pics and have a good thorough discussion on tunnels, both current AND planned.

The intention was to start a discussion on highway tunnels in general, without having to look through the individual Country threads. Historic, current and future tunnel discussions would all be included.

Perhaps you could actually tell us something about tunnels instead of beating a dead horse?

wow, since flickr changed, I guess I will have to update the old links. Sorry about that, will update as soon as I can.

Anyways, I think road tunnels are cool. Although I drove through Italy last summer and had no idea there were so many tunnels, they are as common in Europe as gas stations.

Will update with my small photo collection soon.

Continue on.

(oh, also rode the train from Florence to Bologna, that train ride was almost entirely inside a tunnel for 30 minutes with a few short breaks, amazing..)
