The road tunnel runs directly under Dale St. gradually getting deeper as it heads towards the river. When they were driving the tunnel, part of Dale Street** collapsed due to lack of solid cover. A bit of an "Oh s#*t" moment. I don't know if the "Dale Street subsidence" pics relate to this slight boo-boo !

** Somewhere near the Municipal Buildings ie.top end of Dale St. as the tunnel approaches the surface.
