East Kent, Ashford to Cheriton

The section at the Channel Tunnel end of the route is largely earthworks, and over 1.8M. m 3of material has so far been moved.

'Piling continues for bridges, as does work on retaining walls and cut and cover tunnels, ' says 440 contract manager Jim Connolly.

Contractor: Balfour Beatty Major Projects.
