Eurostar inaugurates UK high-speed track

RE: Only 20 minutes quicker!!

Speed of travel to Paris is only part of the reason for building the new track. Since its launch Eurostar has been using a huge amount of capacity of local track. Now that it has this new line, that capacity can be returned for local commuter train use and it will ease overcrowding on some Kent routes. Plus other high speed commuter service can use that new line.
