There are nine other monuments also listed as world heritage site that
come in the route. In fact, UNESCO has officially warned that
constructing the tunnel could mean that Humayun's tomb is delisted from
the site list.
The Red Fort may have been declared a world heritage site but that

Humayun's tomb in 1993 if the tunnel is made hasn't made any difference
either. The ASI's withdrawal of the no-objection certificate for the
project seems to have strengthened the government's resolve.
