The C Ring is on its way. The A20 seems to be earmarked as the future route to the Channel Tunnel, which also seems imminent. Banbury never got a seperate bypass as such. I wonder where it was meant to go, if not along the M40 line.

A loop under the main line means that trains arrive for unloading at the terminal from the west, departing eastwards for France without having to reverse. All traffic follows the same west-to-east movement, vehicles disembarking eastwards and looping around to gain access to the M20.

In the distance, the western set of ramps that carry traffic down onto the loading area; this is taken from the bridge from which the second, eastern set descend. Further east another two bridges cross the tracks to meet the unloading ramps at the front of the train.

On the right, a freight crossing carrying lorries on open wagons prepares to depart.

Channel Tunnel Terminal at Cheriton, all Ferries to France were cancelled due to the strike of French Fishermen blocking the French ferryports at Easter 2009.

French & English Level Crossing Sign.jpg
The English 'STOP when lights show' sign pictured above the French variant at the level crossing on the West side of Dollands Moor Freight Yard. The other signs leading up to the AHBC are all in English (with the overhead line safe height surprisingly only in Imperial units). This is probably the only sign like this in the UK and reads for the benefit of the French Eurotunnel workers: 'Arret obligatoire si les feux clignotants Sont en action'. A bit less straight forward than the English version.
