Deryck Abel, HB, 127pp, The Pall Mall Press, 1961.

In this comprehensive survey Abel bases himself on the extensive researches carried out from 1958 to 1960 by the Channel Tunnel Study Group. After an historical survey, covering the last 150 years, he explains the initiatives recently taken by British, French and American interested parties. His technical survey includes the conclusions of the geophysicists and an appraisal of engineering devices and techniques - immersed tube, bridge, railway tunnel, road tunnel, rail-cum-road tunnel. He deals also with potential tunnel traffic and its conditioning factors, and finally with the financial and legal problems involved.
