A project is underway to link the West Bay area with the Hamad International Airport (HIA) through an undersea tunnel. This will be one of the major projects to be implemented in the coming years linking Doha south, central Doha and Doha north, Al Sharq reported yesterday. The project will start from West Bay near to the City Center as a two-lane bridge in both directions towards the sea and then become a tunnel under the sea leading to the airport. It will meet a second subway starting from the new airport road with a three-lane undersea tunnel leading to New Doha. The third segment of the project starts from Lusail with three lanes in each direction, with a bridge and undersea tunnel leading to New Doha. All these lanes will join at one point under the sea off the Corniche. The tunnel will have sub-lanes linking some key tourist destinations such as the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha Sheraton and Katara, said the daily. The project also includes several entertainment venues for people using the tunnel.
