The Channel Tunnel has been called the greatest engineering project of the century, overcoming a unique set of financial, political and engineering challenges. This book provides a comprehensive insight into the events which culminated in the first dry link between Britain and France. It describes the relationship between the site investigation, data interpretation and construction of the works. It examines areas such as the difficulties inherent in predicting geology from a relatively small number of boreholes and revealing how the use of modern geophysical techniques.

The Channel Tunnel is a huge construction project, employing over 14,000 people at peak, and costing over 15611 billion of private money. It has succeeded in spite of great financial, political and techncial difficulties, and a fundamentally flawed contract. This book tells the story of the project, based on the coverage in Construction News and with commentary taken from recent interviews with key project sources.

Commissioned by the Cabinet Office and using hitherto untapped British Government records, this book presents an in-depth analysis of the successful project of 1986-94. This is a vivid portrayal of the complexities of quadripartite decision-making (two countries, plus the public and private sectors), revealing new insights into the role of the British and French Governments in the process. This important book, written by Britain’s leading transport historian, will be essential reading for all those interested in PPPs, British and European economic history and international relations. The building of the Channel Tunnel has been one of Europe’s major projects and a testimony to British-French and public-private sector collaboration. However, Eurotunnel’s current financial crisis provides a sobering backcloth for an examination of the British Government’s long-term flirtation with the project, and, in particular, the earlier Tunnel project in the 1960s and early 1970s, which was abandoned by the British Government in 1975.

The Channel Tunnel is a major civil engineering feat which is in effect the host for an equally impressive and complex transportation system. These proceedings from a conference held in October 1994, address the key strategies and issues specifically related to the design, installation, commissioning, control, operation and maintenance of the transport system from the national road network into the terminals and through the tunnels. It addresses in particular how the design of the rolling stock, control, communicatin, ventilation and power supply systems have developed into reality, and how transportation issues and the maintenance and operation have played such a prominent role in the execution of the project.

This volume presents a collection of papers on techniques and case studies in land surface evaluation for engineering practice written by specialist practitioners in the field. The volume arose out of deliberations by the Second Working Party on Land Surface Evaluation set up by the engineering group of the Geological Society in January 1997 and chaired by Dr J.S. Griffiths. The book provides examples of cost-effective methods for collecting land surface and near surface data prior to carrying further detailed ground investigations of engineering sites.

The seven refereed papers in this special issue of ICE Proceedings cover the planning, design and construction of the UK terminal buildings of the -u10 billion Channel Tunnel project. Written by senior members of the project team, the papers place the terminal in context with other surface works and describe its development from concept to construction. Emphasis is given to the complex relationships which existed between the many statutory bodies, interested parties and local populations together with the responses made to concerns on environmental issues.

The Channel Tunnel, has been one of histories most protracted and at times acrimonious, construction projects. From the paranoia of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when there was a fear that foreign hordes would rush through the tunnel and invade Britain, to the lethargic attempts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, its a miracle, that this great feat of Engineering, was ever constructed at all. Nicholas Faith, has delved into the archives and researched the fascinating truth about this project, that took so long to authorise and construct. The author has found material in the archives, both in Britain and abroad, that has not been previously published or seen, outside a closed group of people.
