Major tunnel project in Abu Dhabi to open this year

The Middle East's longest traffic tunnel is set to be inaugurated in Abu Dhabi on schedule before the end of this year, Arabic Al Ittihad has reported. Almost 80% of the Dhs5bn project has been completed, and the tunnel and its adjoining roads and causeways will become fully operational by the end of 2011. The tunnel had been due to be completed at the end of 2010 but was delayed because of technical and topographical reasons.
