Unlikely Tunnel Art

Corniche Street is a long and busy roadway that provides access to the end of Abu Dhabi Island. On the Arabian Gulf side of the road lies Corniche Beach, pedestrian and bicycle paths, and a green park space for people to enjoy.

Since it can be difficult to cross over the road, there are tunnels under Corniche Street to allow pedestrians easy access from the city to the beach. Each tunnel has a bit of its own character. Many have tiled art with pictures of traditional UAE scenes and some Abu Dhabi buildings colorfully depicted on the walls. The images are a creative way to communicate the history of Abu Dhabi to locals and visitors.
