TUI'SDAY, MARCH r v l!XO AUK.) NKWS The Heller 'Olc Tube Under Si. C loud Park Will Servo Doiililc Purpose PARIS. (UPi-Oi-.spite the war, 1'ieiich engineers under military control Iiavr- waled aiul lined a \ r ehi'.-u!ar tunnel under ihe heights of St. cloud Park, just ouside Paiis. Only a little more ii;m- is needed to complete the roadway and Ihhtinn arrangements, n<>.^ides being the entrance to the paikway. leading 17 miles into country to tiiiiin highways for Ucauville and Dian-itz, tlie tunnel forms the world's largest nud .'.alest air-raid refuge. One thousand to 1.500 motor cirs ;m:l 1(1,000 people- cjni be ,11 comrnodatcd and still keep a lane of ac'-css and egress open. The mas'; of caiili. stone and eoncrcle atovi; it varies from 100 to :i(M I net llilek. It is more than 3,00!) feet lo:i(; and wide enough to take seven files of cars, la this way it is also one uf the widest tunnel:,- of its- length, comparable in Eui-Oiie only to the timtiel mricr tlie Mersey at Liverpool ami another at Antwerp. Of course the tunnel was not ] built for war purpose;;, as its use ! was restricted to louring rais. but I to promote automobile and tourist j industries. Construction has not j been retarded Ijy mobilization, but I work on the reinforced concrete j p:-rkway, which in Prance will l>c | called an atJtostradc, is two months behind. 'Co Have Slow Uniit Although patterned after American parkways, the nntosirade has some distinctive features. In the first place, there will be no toll to pay either for the tunnel or the open air, and there will Ije no speed limit. Instead there will be a slow limit. To avoid intersections where the airtoslrade branches off, west furl south, to meet the national highways, an ingenious .system of three stories of roads has been devised. This will obviate any reduction of speed or of hunting for the turnoff to take, both for cars coming and going. This three- decker section is spread over three-quarters of a square mile. Another novelty will be the use of a five-lane system in the tunnel, so arranged with li?hl .signals that, as required, any number of fllesrpr tracks' .caji, he set t aside for cither" direction, going or' coming. For example, . when cars - J are returning to Paris, Sunday evenings, three or even four files can run in one direction—toward faris—and ore or two in the other. There will be no divisions between lanes except luminous lines. Onens New Area Engineers estimate that when the parkway is completed it will be possible to live 2o miles from Paris in the real country and yet drive into business in the center of Paris in 30 minutes easily. Tlie v-oiislruction was fucilitaled by the fact that all the properly traversed belongs to tlie state. The resrions hci'ig the park and forest of si. Cloud and the forest. . of .Marly. The latter public forest has bean comparatively little used by Parisians in the past because of the inconvenience in getting there. The nntostrade will make it a playground in natural surroundings for anybody who has a car. No landscape gardening has been needed along the route, as it cuts through a real forest with natural hills and vales. The bridges and tunnel entrances have been designed in a style similar to the architecture ol the Versailles chateau.
