Eurotunnel traffic resumes

Latest update : 2008-09-14

Traffic in the Channel Tunnel next week will be running at one third of the usual amount following the fire that closed down the north tunnel of the rail and road link.

Channel Tunnel traffic will run at roughly one third of usual volume next week after a fire closed the undersea rail and road link between Britain and continental Europe, operators Eurotunnel said Sunday.

Between 120 and 140 trains carrying Eurostar rail passengers, cars, freight goods or trucks will make their way through the tunnel daily, as against an average of between 300 and 400, a spokesman said.

Traffic in both directions will use the south tunnel, which runs from France to England, since Thursday's fire in the north tunnel, set up to cater for traffic from England to France.
