CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The Channel Tunnel Rail Link is Britain's first dedicated high-speed railway
line and its first major railway-building project in more than a century.
Running from London's newly refurbished St Pancras International to the mouth
of the Channel Tunnel, the link will decrease journey times to Paris and
beyond, as well as to commuter towns in the south-east of England. The project
is also being credited with significant regeneration in the areas around the
new stations and terminus. Well-known architecture and design commentator
Stephen Bayley tells the story of the building of the link and its sensitive
insertion into the rural and urban landscape, from the spectacular renaissance
of St Pancras to the unearthing of significant archaeological remains along the
route, and from the creation of bridges, viaducts and tunnels to the planting
of wild-flower meadows. Lively and entertaining, this is a fascinating record
of a ground breaking project.
