 Channel Tunnel article - Channel Tunnel French rail tunnel English Channel Straits Dover Kent England - What-Means.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-30)
The Channel Tunnel, (French: le tunnel sous la Manche; often nicknamed the Chunnel) is a rail tunnel beneath the English Channel at the Straits of Dover, connecting Cheriton in Kent, England and Sangatte in northern France.
In an unusual move, the British and French governments agreed to provide immigration staff at opposite ends of the tunnel; thus the French immigration control posts are located in England while the British ones are in France.
Given its status as one of the 20th century's most significant feats of engineering, it is perhaps surprising that the Channel Tunnel has not become more of a cultural icon (although admittedly other "modern wonders of the world" such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Empire State Building are more photogenic).
