Begun in 1922 and substantially completed in 1932, the tunnel complex consisted of east-west passage measuring 836 ft. long by 24 ft. wide 13 laterals on its north side and 11 laterals on the south side. Reinforced with concrete walls. Floor and overhead arches with blowers to furnish fresh air and a double-track electric car line along the main tunnel, Malinta provided bombproof shelter for the 1000 bed hospital, MacArthur's USAFFE headquarters, shops and vast labyrinth storehouse during the siege of Corregidor.

Before this west entrance of Malinta Tunnel on the afternoon of 30 December 1941, Manuel L. Quez?n and Sergio Osme?a were inaugurated into their second term as President and Vice-president of the Philippine Commonwealth in simple ceremonies attended by members of the Corregidor garrison
