The ThimphuWangdue tunnel road is part of a road master plan, a 20-year program, to expand the road network in the country through realignments, tunneling and new constructions.
Montague Tunnel (Currently serves the M & R subway lines)--Service between Jamaica & Lower Manhattan and JFK & Lower Manhattan using: the AirTrain/JFK route, the converted Atlantic Branch, new tunneling in Brooklyn, the existing Montague Street Tunnel, and MTA-NYCT Broadway and/or Nassau Line.
The researchers observed up to eight coherent transfers of atoms back and forth between the two stable motions due to dynamic tunneling, and no atoms were observed to exhibit intermediate motion between the two stable oscillatory motions.
By comparing the arrival times of a photon tunneling through the mirror and its companion traveling the same distance just through air, researchers can determine how quickly tunneling occurs.

New Tunnel--Service between Lower Manhattan and JFK & Jamaica using: the AirTrain / JFK route, the converted Atlantic Branch, new tunneling in Brooklyn, a new East River tunnel, and new tunneling in Manhattan.
The two technology approaches are FC/IP, an encapsulation technique also referred to, as tunneling, and iSCSI protocol, a SCSI transport technology that runs on top of TCP/IP with no Fibre Channel legacy in the protocol.
Nonetheless, theorists have suggested that quantum tunneling may occur not only in submicroscopic systems, but also on a macroscopic scale - in tiny magnets made up of several thousand atoms each.
Used in a wide variety of surgeries, including those with large incisions, tunneling is a new way to place the proprietary ON-Q Soaker Catheter close to key nerve bundles, ensuring targeted delivery of local anesthetic.
