Channel Tunnel truck traffic record set in March

New figures released show that a record number of trucks passed through the Channel Tunnel last month. 

Over the course of the month, an all-time record total of 140,009 trucks passed through the Tunnel. Truck shuttle traffic in the first quarter of 2015 has risen eight per cent compared with the same period last year, increasing to 373,635 from 347,021. 

The increase follows last year’s announcement by Groupe Eurotunnel about its aims to expand capacity for HGVs by half a million per year.  At the same time the group also proposed plans to increase traffic volume and relieve congestion in and around the port.
