GET: Groupe Eurotunnel SA: New Channel Tunnel Traffic Record Set During
UK Regulatory Announcement
Groupe Eurotunnel (Paris:GET):
Le Shuttle, Eurotunnel’s cross-Channel car carrying service, has set a new
traffic record. On Good Friday, 29 March, 10,646 vehicles (cars, motorcycles,
vehicles with trailers, caravans and campervans) and 131 coaches crossed the
Channel from Folkestone to Calais, making this the highest volume of traffic
ever carried in one direction, since the opening of the Channel Tunnel. The
previous record, set on 1 June 2012 with 10,380 vehicles, was soundly beaten.
Overall, 14,250 vehicles travelled through the Tunnel on Friday 29 March (both
directions). Eurotunnel Group expects to see further high levels of traffic
for the British Easter holiday returns on 6-7 April and on 13-14 April, which
is also the start of the French school holidays, and a time when many French
families will be setting off for short breaks in the UK.
This new record is once again testimony to the efficiency of Le Shuttle and to
the loyalty our customers have for a transport system that is both easy to use
and respectful of the environment.
