The Channel Tunnel Story

Edited by Anderson, G.; Edited by Roskrow, Ben

The Channel Tunnel is a huge construction project, employing over 14,000 people at peak, and costing over 11 billion of private money. It has succeeded in spite of great financial, political and techncial difficulties, and a fundamentally flawed contract. This book tells the story of the project, based on the coverage in Construction News and with commentary taken from recent interviews with key project sources.
