The NWR was built as a strategic Railway in time of emergency (1915). Speed and cheapness of construction were important and so a single bore was cut. During construction a mid section collapsed leaving 2 tunnels (the western 1 mile and the Eastern 450 yards). In 1922 a second bore was cut to provide a double track.
