... Because of the unstable structure of the bedrock, engineers decided that they could not use borers. They had to blast and hand dig the tunnel. The decision to build the tunnel came about in 1964 when the fifteenth typhoon for the year (Japan has so many typhoons that they don't bother with names anymore, just numbers) sunk 5 ferries in the straits with the loss of thousands of lives. It was a hurried look at what these ferries were like.

Hundreds of people were happily munching away from disposable plates, bowls, etc. yet there were no place to dispose of them. Where was all this flotsam going?

The size and scope of the market puts the Auckland one to shame, and this town only has a population of 300,000.
