Mersey Tunnel Ventilation Shaft
Mersey Tunnel Ventilation Shaft
This strange structure is the massive ventilation shaft for the second Mersey tunnel, at either side are the air intakes for the tunnel. The Kingsway Tunnel, started in 1966 and opened by Queen Elizabeth II in June 1971, is a twin tube tunnel, each "tube" has two traffic lanes twelve feet wide (compared to nine feet wide in the Queensway Tunnel) and is slightly under two miles in length.
