A PROJECT ANALYSIS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHANNEL TUNNEL INTRODUCTION The Channel Tunnel is one of Europe's biggest infrastructure projects ever. The km long tunnel has fulfilled this old dream by linking Britain and the rest of Europe. The idea of a fixed link between Britain and France was first mooted by a French engineer in ; it connects .

London, H.M.S.O., (OCoLC) These proceedings from the conference held in October address in particular how the design of the rolling stock, control, communication, ventilation and power supply systems have developed into reality and how transportation issues and the maintenance and operation have played a prominent role in the execution of the Channel Tunnel project.
The Channel Tunnel, also called the Euro Tunnel or Chunnel, actually consists of three tunnels, each 50 km long and bored in the rock below the seabed of the Channel.
Two of the tubes are full sized and accommodate rail traffic. In between the two train tunnels is a smaller service tunnel that serves as an emergency escape route.

This book provides a comprehensive insight into the events which culminated in the first dry link between Britain and France. The Channel Tunnel is a complex project in every sense. The severe engineering challenge of building a 40 km-long tunnel under the sea was further complicated by the trans-national dimension of the project and the indecision of successive UK and French Governments.
This resulted in a long and arduous decision making process spread over 25 years. Whether you are driving to the Continent for business or pleasure, we have a range of channel tunnel tickets and fares to suit your travel needs and budget.
