The North Downs Tunnel will be the first bored tunnel constructed on the CTRL project. In fact it is the only one in the first section of the rail link. With a cross sectional area of 160m2 and a maximum clear span of 14.9m, it is claimed to be the biggest running tunnel ever constructed in the UK.
