This well advertised event, climax of the extraordinary adventure of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link Project, created a lot of enthusiasm and showed the public the professionalism and the passion of the men behind the Design, Construction and Testing & Commissioning of the first High Speed Line in the United-Kingdom.
