This photo appeared in the Midland Free Press January 20th, 1960 and was accompanied with the following caption:
“This tunnel, under the CPR tracks which cross Highway 12, near Victoria Harbour, has been the subject of much controversy following the motor accident which took the lives of two young people in November. A coroner’s jury at an inquest in Midland into their deaths recommended flasher lights be installed. More recently Victoria Harbour council has urged that the tunnel be widened as a winter works project.”
Nothing was ever done until the CPR abandoned their rail route in the late sixties and the roadway was re-aligned. Many more serious accident and deaths were to occur.
