    I have seen reports of people traversing the tunnel, though I believe entry is not easy and a suitable entry point is hard to find.

    Maybe and just maybe, someone else knows different.

    Its doable but entry is tricky and when inside the air wont be the best with both portals blocked.

    Yes, thank you Lenston, quite understandable. However, I really can't see this scheme achieving fruition, where would the huge amount of money come from? I know the tunnel has been seriously supported by huge rafts of wooden sleepers in one place and from many years of neglect and maintenance, whatever would it take to make it safe enough to reopen to Joe public?

    I'd assume that on the days of the survey the doors will be open...?

    Only the survey team in and cave rescue I'm told. Not really a door as such, it's a hatch at the top.
