Assuming maximum foot traffic from 7am to 7pm. e.g in 12 hours the sum suggests that there will be more than 1500 people in the tunnel every hour.
The tunnel is 300 yards long. If one assumes that the cycle tunnel will be equally used that would mean 2.5 people in every yard of the tunnel. A veritable queue and a two way queue at that!!!
Even assuming a constant 24 hour flow it would mean more than 1 person in every yard.
Absolute cobblers! I was a regular user in my youth when the route was an important thoroughfare for people working over the water and vice versa and I never say it anywhere near that busy.
It strikes me that the money could have been used elsewhere to more effect.
