Book Description

30 May 2008
The Channel Tunnel Rail Link is Britains first dedicated high-speed railway line and its first major railway-building project in more than a century. 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 groundbreaking project.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive publicity brochure 12 Oct 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book rather disappointing. Some nice pictures, but very superficial text. Very little technical and geological detail. 'Persuading people' is presented as another technical problem and does not show any understanding for the people involved. A more critical approach would have increased the credibility and value of this book a lot.

St. Pancras at its most beautiful. A well researched, well written document of its transformation to become the 'home' of Eurostar. Social History at its best.
