Major Project Award - High Commendation

High Commendation - Channel Tunnel Rail Link Section 2

Commissioning authority: Union Railways (North)
Principal designer: Rail Link Engineering
Principal contractor: Various

This second section of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link into London completes the dedicated High Speed One route to the Channel Tunnel. It is the first new railway built in England for over 100 years.

The £3.5 billion project saw the construction of 39km of new twin high-speed track. It has maintained the excellence of the earlier phases, delivering an outstanding example of railway and civil engineering, and demonstrating the best of planning and collaborative working.

The infrastructure was fully completed and commissioned in the spring, with the high-speed trains testing successfully. This project will be the catalyst for regeneration across the areas it touches and beyond.
