The former Southport railway line branched off the main line to Tweed Heads at a station called Ernest Junction just South of the tunell.
Parts of this former line are accessible on foot. These sections are mainly west of the Parklands Drive/Smith St intersection.
The tunnel itself is curved, preventing one end from being seen from the other and has been described as ‘spooky’.
