Celebration supplement NCE 11 September Britain's first new railway line for over a century will be opened in September. Channel Tunnel Rail Link Section One, from the Channel Tunnel to Fawkham Junction in north Kent, is the UK's first truly high speed line and will cut around 20 minutes off the journey from central London to central Paris. Its planning, management, design and construction represent a magnificent achievement for the UK railway construction industry.
