High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles High Speed 1 (HS1),
officially known as the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL) and
originally as the Continental Main Line (CML), is a 108-kilometre
(67-mile) high-speed railway line running from London, through Kent
to the British end of the Channel Tunnel. The CTRL project was one
of the United Kingdom's largest civil engineering projects,
encompassing many new bridges and combined tunnels nearly as long
as the Channel Tunnel itself. During the construction of the CTRL a
major archaeology project was conducted alongside the work. In 2002
the CTRL project was awarded the "Major Project Award" at the
British Construction Industry Awards. During and after construction
there have been several periods of financial difficulties, both
with cost overruns and difficulties with organisations behind the
constuction project, and eventually the completed line came into
public hands in 2009 with plans to sell it back to the private
sector under new ownership.
