Cutting leading to a tunnel under the link between the two docks so that passenger trains didn't have to be held up when the surface line across the swing bridge nearby was blocked by shipping movements.

Swing bridge taking the PLA railway system across the link between the Royal Victoria and the Royal Albert Docks. Also carried Connaught Road as well as two railway tracks - separately, so one form of transport didn't have to wait for the other!
