We hope the proposed designs will be accepted by the council and implemented shortly after the tunnel lining works are completed in April 2006.

The name 'HoldYourBreath'comes from the habit of local children, who try and hold their breath
from one end of the Tunnel to the other, as if they are diving under the Clyde.
