Major engineering work on the CRTL

Major engineering work on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CRTL) high-speed railway tunnels under London was completed last week when the last section of paving was laid. The two parallel tunnels run between St Pancras and Dagenham and will carry a single track on which trains will run at up to 143 mph. Once the entire CRTL is open in 2007, the fastest London to Paris Eurostar journey times will be reduced to 140 minutes.
