High Speed 1 (HS1).

The Channel Tunnel Rail Link is the first new railway in England for over 60 years, and the first to operate at high speed (300Kph).



The Channel Tunnel Rail Link is the first new railway in England for over 60 years, and the first to operate at high speed (300Kph). Since suggesting an alternative route in 1990 Arup has been centrally involved in the routing, economic viability, design and delivery of the project. Arup has lead the majority of the engineering disciplines and environmental work through the preliminary and detail design phase. The Arup team has consisted of over 200 staff across all disciplines. As designer, Arup has carried out route alignment, detail design, environmental work and project management. This $8.2 billion project is located in the southeast, connecting the Channel Tunnel with Central London. It includes provision for future links to the North. It is 108.8km long and incorporates 3.8km of elevated track and major bridges across principal waterways, 36.8km of tunnel and 117 supplementary bridges.
