"We built the Mersey Tunnel, Boys
way back in 'thirty three
Dug an 'ole in the ground until we found
An 'ole called Wallasey
And the foreman cried, Come on outside
the roof is falling down
And I'm telling you Jack, we all swam back
To dear old Liverpool Town"
I wish I was back in Liverpool by Stan Kelly-Bootle
King George V and Queen Mary opened the Queensway Tunnel on July 14 1934.
Work was started in the 1920s and it was planned to be the longest underwater tunnel at the time. The main tunnel is 2 miles 230 yards long and there are a couple of side tunnels for different exits in Birkenhead and on the Dock Road in Liverpool.
