The 2009 Euros race report is now LIVE - sort of.

The early pre-pre-report consists of a write up of the road trip so far as we slowly grind our way across France to attend this great event. Be sure to keep checking back for great race coverage soon - the event starts properly on Monday.

Did I post in the wrong thread...

Ha ha very good Mr Jimmy...

Just for the record the ferry companies are the ones responsible for the tunnel being only for trains. There were a few projects to choose from and especially one (MY grand dad's project, yes MY) which had fierce oposition from the ferry companies. "Cars driving under the sea by themselves for a small toll? ARE YOU MAD?" they said... So we got the trains...

'bout the toilets they're actually turkish toilets, HA :p

WOW, can you imagine. A tunnel for cars that links the UK with Europe! I guess the issue would have been at what point do you have to change side of the road :confused:

It's obvious, at the limit between english waters and international waters :p And a massive traffic jam at the lights where that happens lol

It's fairly easy to do that without interupting traffic flow: Clicky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lotus_Bridge)

Blimey...that looks a bit complicated :woot:...why don't they just have a single bridge that runs one of the directions of flow over the other?

Or am I missing the point somehow???
