Tunnel Vision (1 of 2)

Last week saw the opening of the Clem7 tunnel which runs for 4.8kms and gets down to 60m below the Brisbane River. It connects Bowen Hills in the north with Woolloongabba in the south. It was a gigantic project employing 11,000 people. For 2 years, Milton Road has borne the brunt of huge trucks shifting 3.5 million tonnes of rock along it, day and night, towards the quarry in Mount Coot-tha.

For one day only on Sunday Feb 28th, they opened up the tunnel to runners and walkers. It offered a relaxed, leisurely look at what is likely from now on to be viewed at 60kph. This is a photo of the rock walls and roof at the Bowen Hills entrance. Thanks to MaryAnne Bland, who kindly donated this and tomorrow's shot.
