Tai Lam Tunnel

Tai Lam Tunnel is a dual 3-lane tunnel in Hong Kong. The tunnel and its highway connection itself are also known as Route 3 , which is 10.1 km long connecting Au Tau, Yuen Long and Ting Kau, Tsuen Wan. The tunnel is 3.8 km long and is part of the Tsing Long Highway.

The tunnel acts as a major access to the northwest part of New Territories and mainland China from Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula.
