over the tunnel

The Cross-Harbour Tunnel (abbreviated CHT or XHT) is the first tunnel in Hong Kong built underwater. It has become one of the most congested roads (mainly towards the Hong Kong Island direction) in Hong Kong and the world. The tunnel was constructed using the Immersed tube method.

 

海底隧道(英文:Cross Harbour Tunnel),又名香港海底隧道、紅磡海底隧道,簡稱紅隧、海隧,是香港首條由九龍通往香港島的過海行車隧道。於1969年9月1日動工,1972年8月2日通車,耗資港幣3.2億港元。隧道全長1.86公里,以沉管式隧道建造,車速限制70公里。海底隧道是世界上最繁忙的4線行車隧道之一,也是香港最繁忙、使用率最高的道路,僅次於東區海底隧道。
