Abstract:

The Channel Tunnel is the world's largest privately-financed civil engineering project, and generates strong feelings of both support and opposition. The Channel Tunnel: A Geographical Perspective offers an up-to-date, well-argued and critical analysis of the major issues and developments associated with the Channel Tunnel and its supporting transport infrastructure, including issues which have so far received little attention. The book recognises that the Channel Tunnel is as much an exceptional political as an exceptional engineering achievement. The eleven chapters address the most fundamental questions about the past, present and future developments associated with the Channel Tunnel. This is an essential book for students, teachers and researchers in transport, geography, economics and European studies.
