Nice one Harki,
It was James73 who came across your site with the pics of the cleared tunnels and thought it would be a good idea to have a look to see if you could still gain access.

Thanks for the pics, without them we would have not have known about the work taking place. 8)

Cheers,
Smartalex.

Sorry for being a total retard here, but where exactly is the Kelvindale tunnel located? I can't place it.
