Section Two of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link

NEWS

SPELLAR CHECK: Transport minister John Spellar this week signalled the start of construction for the £3.3bn Section Two of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link by performing a groundbreaking ceremony at the project's Stratford site. Spellar started a hydromill by remote control, to start digging a 1km long hole to house a new international station at the site.

The station is part of the works for the second section of the high speed railway, and will run from Ebbsfleet in Kent to London St Pancras. Section One, running between Folkestone and Ebbsfleet, is almost two thirds complete. NCE's recently published supplement on the CTRL can be found at www. nceplus. co. uk
