Channel Tunnel Rail Link

Medway, UK

This project involved the aesthetic and design brief for all engineering structures on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link project, involving over 100 bridges and associated structures. Including the bespoke design of major high speed rail crossings at Kings Cross, Ashford, Ebbsfleet and Rochester, plus generic design strategies for other sections of the route.

The rail link is highly visible as it crosses the Kent countryside adjacent to the busy M20, and therefore it was necessary to design a family of details – in essence, a distinctive brand – which could be applied line-wide to create a strong continuity across the many structures.
