Police are attempting to find out who built an elaborate tunnel near the venue for the Pan Am Games.
The extensive underground structure was first discovered back in January, but having been unable to solve the mystery of who constructed it and why the police have now revealed all known details of the case in an effort to appeal for more information.

The tunnel, which has now been filled in, is not thought to have posed any danger to the Pan Am Games venue despite being built only a short distance away on York University's Keele Campus.

The bunker measured 1.93m high, 86.4cm across and stretched for 10 meters under the ground. It had been built with some degree of skill by someone who obviously knew what they were doing.
It is believed that several people would have been involved in digging out the tunnel which was supported by wooden beams and even had its own electrical lighting installed.

No evidence has been found so far to suggest that those responsible had criminal intentions however its presence in the area has raised suspicions of possible foul play.

The news conference announcing the tunnel's discovery can be viewed below.

One of my sovereign citizen former-coworker buried a school bus for a bunker on his property. Used PVC piping for ventilation with a generator and the works. Even made tunnels going from his house to a strawberry patch so he could flank people that might be laying siege to his house. He owns his own backhoe and has had experience excavating and trenching, however.

Not a bad idea. Almost the reverse problem of a container, though: high lateral strength (for car impacts), but nothing in particular (to the best of my knowledge) for weight from above. Or do school buses had internal roll bars? No clue.

School buses do indeed have an integral roll cage. I still wouldn't bury it very deep though. Water tables issues and all that. He used spiral sewer piping for his tunnel system. I should ask him if he ever drove his backhoe over the top of it.

I've always wondered about sewer piping. I remember, when I was a child, they were setting up this massive drain system and had brought in all these massive pipes and concrete cubes and layed them out, and for a pack of 4 foot tall preteens, this was the ultimate in fantasy playground equipment

I saw something similar happen on a mythbusters episode. Just a little dirt on top and it started to fall in. One of my sovereign citizen former-coworker buried a school bus for a bunker on his property. Used PVC piping for ventilation with a generator and the works. Even made tunnels going from his house to a strawberry patch so he could flank people that might be laying siege to his house. He owns his own backhoe and has had experience excavating and trenching, however. There were some people who buried a bus on BLM land on the hill beyond my parents place in southern Oregon. They used it fo... [More]

there is a whole underground shelter complex build by burring 42 school busses. ARK TWO. Man, just read up on that. Pretty impressive. The guy used the schoolbuses as a template for concrete. Looks like it worked out really nice.

Doomsday Bunker. Be sure to research the EMP possibilities as well as the possible coming financial meltdown and build your bug-out pack.
