The Kitson 2017 Tunnel and the Dell Deviation

July 01, 2017

In mid 2015 our president suggested it really was time we removed the bottleneck of the shared tunnel.  This led to a project to build a new tunnel under the access road and also the toilets!  We did some preparation work  during summer 2016 which included tree management on the Dell.  Late summer we dug under the toilets and built a that part of the tunnel.

In October 2016 after the last open day we set to and started on the cut and cover tunnel across the access to Ravensprings.  All the work on site was completed by members of BHME and will be open for the first open day of 2017 and the Dell Deviation and The Kitson Tunnel were official opened on the 2 April.

 

There is still a lot of work to do on the site to complete this major project but until we have earned some money we cannot do any more.  Watch out for changes when you visit this year.
