The Engineering Project Department of the Imam Hussein Shrine has announced a plan to build a large tunnel surrounding the Imam Hussein Shrine and the Abbas Shrine.

Director of the department Hussein Ridha Mehdi stated, “This will be one of the most important projects that will be executed in a few years, for it will connect pilgrims’ traffic between the Imam Hussein Shrine and the Abbas Shrine underground.”

Mehdi added that the project will provide more space and contribute to facilitating pilgrims’ traffic during grand pilgrimages.

It’s worth mentioning that the surrounding area of the Imam Hussein Shrine is witnessing works of the expansion project that cover 52,000 square meters—and this is the first part of the strategic plan that will cover over half a million square meters.
