Usually tunnels only have a very blurred/bright color.
Please have a look to a normal tunnel like eg. the Engelbergtunnel:
There the tunnel can hardle be seen on the rendering.
In the case of the Elbe Tunnel (under water) the road has the same (or 
almost the same) color as it would be "above the water". For me this 
really confuses.

Please compare Engelbergtunnel (landmass) to Elbe-Tunnel. This can't be 
the same. Maybe the additional access control flags on the Elbe Tunnel 
cause the problem, I don't know.

both are fine but could be even a litte more bright (IMHO).
But if you compare these two against the Elbe-Tunnel you can see that 
the Elbe tunnel is not at all that bright and "hidden".

Best regars,
