The coastal road has two tunnels of 2.07 km each and these high-end Saccardo nozzles will be installed in both tunnels enabling an advanced ventilation system, emergency escape routes and a safe room for the underground tunnel.

Saccardo nozzles also known as Saccardo ejectors or impulse nozzles supply external air into a tunnel by fans situated in a fan chamber outside the tunnel.
