    Yes, the route in mapped out on normal A-Z's.

    It's pretty much as to be expected, in a straight line under Dale street and Brunswick Street. A section of Dale street actually caved in during construction.

    It hasn't changed at all since it was built to my knowledge. The inset is prior to 1934...

    They "claimed" that Manchester Dock and Chester Basin were subsiding because of the tunnel excavations, so filled them in.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
