Tunnel vision? Book Description:

The Channel Tunnel's full potential is yet to be unlocked. Focusing particularly on the Channel Tunnel's role in connecting the passenger and freight rail network in Europe, the Committee's seven-month long inquiry has heard from a variety of rail experts including the Chief Executive of Eurostar, representatives from Eurotunnel and Deutsche Bahn and Transport Minister Theresa Villiers MP. The key recommendations from the committee are: i) the EU should ensure the full implementation of the Railway Packages in all Member States, to ensure fair access for all; ii) the terms of the Treaty of Canterbury (the agreement that allowed the Channel Tunnel's construction) should be reviewed, in order to move towards direct governance of the Tunnel by the UK and French national regulators; iii) safety standards used across the EU should apply in full in the Tunnel; iv) access charges should be reviewed and reduced, to ensure a better deal for operators and passengers; v) Border controls should be examined and streamlined, to encourage new international services to be developed; vi) priority for EU funding for rail infrastructure should be given to projects contributing to economic growth at a critical time for the Union, with conditions attached to ensure that new rail developments ensure fair access and are compatible with rail networks across the EU; vii)consumer interests must be paramount. Member States must increase the importance and awareness of passenger rights, and ensure that tickets can be booked conveniently and in an integrated way to allow for easier and less bureaucratic international train travel
