Mersey Tunnel Tour

Allegro Explorers visited the Kingsway Mersey tunnel. The tour visits the Police control room and the tunnel control room, then you see one of the massive ventilation fans start up. Then it’s down a lot of stairs to watch the cars wizzing past from an emergency exit and finally down into the space below the tunnel to see an emergency refuge. It was a fascinating visit that made us aware of all the behind the scenes engineering and activity that you just don’t realise is there as you drive through.
