Indications of the route and other characteristics of the 25 kV ac electrified high-speed line between London and the English Channel Tunnel terminal near Folkstone have been given in several previous issues of Modern Railways, notably in that of April 1972. Earlier this year British Railways Board published a document for consultation entitled "Channel Tunnel: London-Tunnel New Rail Link." Fully illustrated with maps and plans, the booklet fills in details not hitherto published and indicates some modifications. Its avowed purpose is to inform the public of the character of the proposed new rail link which the outgoing Conservative Government believed to be an essential complement to the Tunnel itself, and to provide an opportunity for expression of views on its possible environmental consequences.
