Good video on these tunnels at eNCA website:

Regrettably one end of them is now being destroyed by the construction of a taxi rank.

A potted history of the SA Post Office on its official website here which mentions the tunnels under the year 1935:

Off topic but of course we have to be concered about the fate of the fabulous old Rissik St Post Office, built between 1896 and 1898, now standing derelict and forelorn. Will it ever be retored?
