Dudley Ward Tunnel
From: Sandy Bay
To: Europa Road
Countries: Gibraltar

The Dudley Ward Tunnel is a road tunnel through the south-eastern part of the Rock of Gibraltar. It is named after Sir Alfred Dudley Ward, Governor of Gibraltar from 8 June 1962 to 5 August 1965. The tunnel links the eastern side of the Rock, including Catalan Bay and Sandy Bay, via the Sir Herbert Miles Road, with Europa Point, at the southern tip of Gibraltar. Following a rockfall on 18 February 2002, which killed a man, the Government concluded that the risk of further such incidents was too great, and the tunnel was closed indefinitely.

Reopening

In 2007, its reopening was suggested by the Government of Gibraltar to ease traffic flow in the area of the new Rosia residential developments. Works on the stabilisation of The Rock's cliff began in summer 2009 and the tunnel is due to reopen in spring 2010.[1]
