The Channel Tunnel: Transport systems
Thomas Telford, 1995 - Channel Tunnel - 65 pages
The Channel Tunnel is a major civil engineering feat which is in effect the host for an equally impressive and complex transportation system. These proceedings from a conference held in October 1994, address the key strategies and issues specifically related to the design, installation, commissioning, control, operation and maintenance of the transport system from the national road network into the terminals and through the tunnels. It addresses in particular how the design of the rolling stock, control, communicatin, ventilation and power supply systems have developed into reality, and how transportation issues and the maintenance and operation have played such a prominent role in the execution of the project.
