Túnel de Occidente

Túnel de Occidente

This, the longest and most modern tunnel in Latin America with 2.88 miles in length, re-duced the distance between Medellín and Santa Fe de Antioquia from 46 to 32 miles. The tunnel, officially called ‘Fernando Gómez Martínez’, honoring the name of this 20th century politician and journalist, features spearheading technology: 42 security cam-eras, ventilation and illumination systems, 800 lights, fire protection system, and a radio station (106.9 FM) that transmits inside the tunnel since its official opening in 2006.
