If you haven’t yet used the new Lane Cove Tunnel – have a go while it’s still free! I’ve been using it to get to and from work since it opened – 80km/h and no traffic lights – Yesss! It cuts my travel time by about 10 minutes both ways. I tried Epping Road couple of weeks ago and it was like a ghost town – except with traffic lights and a 60km/h speed limit – Booo! I’m sure it’ll be a different story when they start charging $2.50 each way to use it but until then I’m sold.
The weird thing with the new tunnel is that it breathes – a load rushing noise with gusts of wind that can knock the car around. It’s alive!
