Long Description:
This tunnel originally provided access to properties on the north side of the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway by allowing Chilco Road to pass under the railway from Atkins Road. When residential development began on the north side in the early- to mid-2000s, the tunnel was closed to vehicular traffic and Chilco Road was realigned to the east and joined to Six Mile Road. The tunnel is now restricted to foot and bicycle traffic with bollards at each end. In 2007, local artist Morgan Macaulay and the children of Chilco Road and Atkins Road worked together to paint the entire tunnel - including the ceiling - with a mural.
