Engineering geomorphological, geological and geotechnical information, pertinent to a long linear engineering project, was required to provide support to a Parliamentary Bill and assist the future design and construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. A wide variety of reports, maps and borehole logs had been collated for locations in the vicinity of the route alignment. These were to be supplemented with Phase I ground investigations for limited locations along the route during the winter of 1993/94. Phase I information was to be incorporated with the desk study information to provide an initial classification of the route geomorphology and ground conditions, and provide a sensible basis from which to design subsequent Phase II ground investigations.
