THE MERSEY TUNNEL - THE JUNCTION CHAMBER on the Birkenhead side of the tunnel. The branch tunnel leads to the dock system, and the roadway is 19 feet wide between kerbs. The chamber was excavated to a height of 48 feet for a length of 55 feet and a width of 72 feet. A black glass dado, 6 ft. 3 in. high, lines the tunnel. Fire-alarm stations and telephone boxes are arranged at intervals of 150 feet and ordinary traffic signals control the traffic at the junctions.

THE MERSEY TUNNEL - THE EXHAUST TOWERS of the six ventilating stations, three on either side of the river, range in height up to 210 feet. Each building contains duplicate sets of blower and exhaust fans which range up to 28 feet in diameter.

THE MERSEY TUNNEL - THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE TUNNEL at Liverpool is situated in the Old Haymarket. The subsidiary entrance is conveniently placed to serve the dock system. The length of the main tunnel is 3,751 yards, and the branch tunnels on either side of the river bring the total length of roadway to 5,064 yards. Work was started on the Mersey Tunnel on December 16, 1925, and it was officially named Queensway and opened by King George V on July 18, 1934.
