The prompt and on-budget opening of the second phase of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link has been a major feat for designers, according to its lead consultant for wayfinding and signage on the project, Tony Howard. The High Speed 1 Line, as it is now known, was inaugurated by the Queen on Tuesday and officially begins services next week (14 November). It will deliver national and international trains to three new destina tions – stations in Ebbsfleet, Kent, Stratford in east London and St Pancras in central London. Among the design groups involved are Transport Design Consultancy, branding group Lewis Moberly and typeface designers Dalton Maag, which have all collaborated on the £800m project. Architects and civil engineers on the project included Arup, Pascal & Watson and Chapman Taylor.
