Eurotunnel maintenance

Eurotunnel 2018 Maintenance Works Update

As part of Eurotunnel's annual investment programme, Eurotunnel plans regular essential maintenance works and upgrades in the tunnel. The aim is always to minimise the impact on customers and therefore maintenance periods are scheduled when traffic is at its lowest.

To help you manage your deliveries accordingly, please note the following changes in Eurotunnel's timetable:
