Monday November 10, 2008 - Email this article to a friend

Services are still not back to normal after the fire last September and skiers may be disrupted this season.

However, Eurotunnel stresses that work is going well and this month released figures showing many more vehicles had been carried than were expected.

The fire on September 11th destroyed part of the tunnel and it took 100 firefighters more than 15 hours to put it out.  32 people were led to safety and 14 were treated for minor injuries.

Currently one passenger train runs every 90 minutes, there used to be 2 - 3 every hour.

"The reconstruction work is going well and it's hoped we will complete it all by mid-February," advises Charlotte Brokes, a spokeswoman from Eurotunnel.

Anyone who has booked a crossing for the ski season will be contacted and advised if their crossing time has been moved.

One of our reporters here at planetSKI.eu is driving to the Alps this week and will let us know how repairs are going and services are affected.

Last month Eurotunnel carried its 14 millionth truck with 5,676 train and shuttles using the tunnel in October.
