The Alderney end of the Booth Tunnel.

The Booth Tunnel is a road tunnel connecting Algonquin with Alderney in the Grand Theft Auto IV rendition of Liberty City.


Designed as the only road tunnel to link two islands in Liberty City, the Booth Tunnel, along with the Hickey Bridge to the north, are the only points of access into Alderney via car; it connects northern Westminster in Algonquin to southern Alderney City in Alderney. While the tunnel is a four lane, two direction connection, the tunnel's road bottlenecks to two lane throughfares at both ends of the tunnel, occasionally resulting in the player encountering difficulty exiting one end of the tunnel, especially at the Alderney end, which may not provide sufficient room for the player's car to squeeze though its opening. The prominent mission it was used in was the Tunnel of Death.

The tunnel is guarded by the LCPD officers with police-booths at both ends, which may occasionally depict a police officer inspecting the trunk of a parked car; the tunnel also comes equipped with LED signage that inform drivers of safety tips and security announcements. A Maverick also spawns on a helipad over the Alderney end of the Booth Tunnel, which is a popular spot for multiplayer, especially for Free Mode.

An interesting sight can be witnessed over the Algonquin access road to the Booth Tunnel: due to the topography of the land (the further inland you go, the higher the elevation), a short segment of the A/J Algonquin Outer Line, which is in a subway, actually passes over the sloping, surface-level access road.

The tunnel is based on the Lincoln Tunnel in New York City, but the tunnel is presumably named after John Wilkes Booth, the assassin responsible for killing Lincoln's.

There is helicopter pads near both entrances, one with a Swift and Buzzard, if TBoGT is unlocked there is still a maverick and on the other one their is a maverick as well.
