SloMoVideos - Tunnel of Death (Lefortovo Tunnel, Russia)

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Lefortovo tunnel (Russian: Лефортовский тоннель) is a road tunnel in the Lefortovo District in Moscow, Russia that is part of the Third Ring road (Russian: 3-го транспортного кольца). At 2.2 km (1.367 miles) long it is the fourth longest in-city tunnel of Europe (after the Giovanni XXIII Tunnel in Rome at 2.9 km, the Dublin Port Tunnel at 4.5 km and the Södra länken in Stockholm, also 4.5 km).

The tunnel runs under the Yauza River, and water leaks in at some points. When the temperature reaches −38 degrees Celsius as during the winter of 2005, the road surface can freeze.

It has been nicknamed "The Tunnel of Death" due to its high accident rate and a video circulating around the Internet apparently compiling footage of vehicle accidents recorded by monitoring cameras.
