The Dolmabahçe-Bomonti Tunnel (Turkish: Dolmabahçe-Bomonti Tüneli) is a twin-tube road tunnel under the inner city of Istanbul, Turkey connecting the neighborhood of Dolmabahçe in Beşiktaş district and Bomonti in Şişli district. Opened in 2010, it is 2,360–2,390 m (7,740–7,840 ft) long and under 40 m (130 ft) underground.
The tunnel is part of a project of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality to build seven tunnels for the "City of Seven Hills", which is the nickname of Istanbul. It was opened on June 14, 2010 as the second tunnel of this project following the Kağıthane-Piyalepaşa Tunnel after a construction time of three years. Its southeast entry is situated north of the BJK İnönü Stadium in Dolmabahçe. It runs under the neighborhoods Taksim and Feriköy. The northwest entry is located in Bomonti. The two independent tubes with two lanes each are 2,360 metres (1.47 mi) and 2,390 m (1.49 mi) long. The tunnel is linked with the Kağıthane-Piyalepaşa Tunnel over a connection road of 500–600 m (1,600–2,000 ft) between Bomonti and Piyalepaşa.
