HISTORY OF TUNNEL UNDER THE CHANNEL CHANNEL - SARTIAUX ( last uploaded )

SUBMARINE TUNNEL Diagram of the tunnel that was supposed to connect Douvres to Sangatte passing under the English Channel, according to the project presented in the early twentieth century by the French engineer Albert Sartiaux (23 July 1845 - 10 October 1921) with the British colleague Francis Fox ( June 29, 1844 - January 7, 1927); the important project aimed to create a railway connection between the United Kingdom and France by electric traction trains, so as not to compromise the quality of the air in the underground duct but also because traffic control could remain at the surface power stations; for similar tactical defense reasons, access would have taken place via viaducts, which would have offered passengers an unforgettable panorama with the advantage of being able to be quickly shot down in case of danger of invasion by an enemy. Print from popular publication, Italy 1918
