The Chunnel

10,000 years ago the sea threw an arm over a low-lying plain between present-day England and France and submerged it forever to form the English Channel.
In November 1990, engineers of England and France who had been tunneling from opposite sides for three long years finally met beneath the English Channel. They had drilled through 50 km of chalky rook - 38 km of it below the English Channel to make the dream of connecting England and France with a tunnel, a reality! The Chunnel was opened to traffic on 15th June, 1993.
