Clem 7 Tunnel

Hi everone,  What do you do when your bored and got nothing better to do and in another city?  Why you get in the car and drive through the newly completed Clem7 tunnel from one side of Brisbane to the other and back again.

The Tunnel Entrance
 The tunnel is 6 kms long (or one argument over the camera in our case).and is the newest infrastructure to open in Brisbane.  It is toll free for a few weeks so we decided to take advantage of this and try it out.  It is quite fast or at least it was at about 2pm I don't know how it would stand up to the peak hour traffic.
Nearly in the Tunnel
  The reports in the paper aren't very complimentary, some say that if an accident occurs the traffic is slowed to a snail's pace.  There are also reports of a lot of pollution in the tunnel.

Inside the Clem7 Tunnel
  It seemed a bit stuffy but otherwise OK.  Tomorrow I am looking forward to the Craft Expo although I will have my handbrake in tow (DH).
 Talk again soon
