This car tunnel in the city of Ufa could had to be really huge. It was constructed in four lines under a high arch.  Its construction began in 1992. The works were stopped in 2004 and nobody can say if they get back to work again. Only one worker is now in the tunnel.

It was planned to build a 974 m long bridge leading to the other bank of the local river. However, construction of the bridge never started and the land was occupied by local citizens and their houses.

The project is very complex and expensive. But its dismantling will be even more expensive than further construction. Workers say that there is no way back, they can move only forward. Sounds exciting.
