A Railway tunnel was built in about 1884 under Vulture Street, Brisbane between the Woolloongabba Goods Yard and the coal wharves on the Brisbane River. This facilitated the transport of coal from the Ipswich coal mines to the railway sidings at the South Brisbane coal wharves. The old tunnel lies beneath the approaches to the Captain Cook Bridge.

Was this tunnel used by the military during WW2? 

 

Can anyone help me with more information?
