ABSTRACT
The article discusses the proposed construction of a tunnel beneath the English Channel. It is highlighted that ferry passage across the Channel is notoriously trying due to bad weather conditions. There have been proposals for the establishment of a dry land passage between England and France across the Channel and the most common of all is the construction of a tunnel. Mining engineer Albert Mathieu put forward the first scheme for the construction of the tunnel.
