The tunnel was opened in 1996. It’s 3,180 metres (10,430 ft) long. The surface is asphalted. One report said two women picked her up and she warned them something dreadful was going to happen. Then, she disappeared.

The tunnel has been well known because a ghost known as the White Lady. She is described as being an old woman dressed all in white. It has gained for itself a terrifying reputation. Shaped as an old white-clothed hitchhiking woman, a ghost (though not initially recognized as such) appears out of nowhere in front of the drivers and sometimes even speaks to them. This phantom hitchhiker would be picked up from the hard shoulder of the motorway only to vanish from the vehicle in question whilst in the tunnel.
