    I didn't think of the name lol. After doing some research I discovered the whole area is called Project C, and was constructed as fuel storage during ww2

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this it?

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Williams_Way,_Gibraltar

    A description of William's way:

    It is one of two tunnels in Gibraltar named after Lt Col A R O Williams, of 178 Tunnelling Company,*Royal Engineers. Arthur Robert Owen Williams (1905-1989) was known as "ARO". He had trained as a miner in South Africa and was in charge of tunneling operation in Gibraltar during World War II. When he left the army he was also given anOBE.cWilliams also gave his name to*Arow Street*which is a tunnel entirely inside the rock.

    Found this too (rock of Gibraltar):

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_of_Gibraltar

    When*World War II*broke out in 1939, the authorities evacuated the civilian population to*Morocco, the*United Kingdom,*Jamaica, and*Madeira*so that the military could fortify Gibraltar against a possible German attack. By 1942 there were over 30,000 British soldiers, sailors, and airmen on the Rock. They expanded the tunnel system and made the Rock a keystone in the defence of shipping routes to the Mediterranean.

    In February 1997, it was revealed the British had a secret plan called*Operation Tracer*to conceal service men in tunnels beneath the Rock in case the Germans captured it. The team in the rock would have radio equipment with which to report enemy movements. A six-man team waited under cover at Gibraltar for two and half years. The Germans never got close to capturing the rock and so the men were never sealed inside. The team was disbanded to resume civilian life when the war ended,

    I could be looking at the wrong thing, but Hope it helps regardless!

    This tunnel system is called Project C, and is actually connected to the tunnel you mentioned (Williams way). Here in Gibraltar we have over 30 miles of tunnel, which, considering the whole peninsula is only 3 miles squared, is impressive!

    Nice research btw!
