It is a technical ly feasible proposition and economically sound. In a few years' time, Pariswill be only a four-hour train journey from London and cars will eb whiske d through to the Continent in well under an hour. It is, nevertheless, a vast project. In this new, comprehensive survey Deryck Abel abses himself on the extensive researches carried out from 1958 to 1960 by the Channel Tunnel Study Group. After an historical survey, covering the last 150 years, he explains the initiatives recently taken bny British, French and American interested parties. his technical survey includes teh conclusions of the geophysicists and an appraisal of engineering devices and techniques -- immersed tube, bridge, railway tunnel, road tunnel, rail-cum-road tunnel. He dealsalso with potential tunnel traffic and its conditioning factors, and final ly with the financial and legal problems involved. At a time when the Common Market and growing unity dominate European development, this book is an essential guide to a project that may well prove to be a turning point in Britain's relationship with the Continent." - from the dustjacket.
