It sounds so obvious a solution to the energy needs of the two countries. France has been a nett exporter of electricity to the UK for years via undersea cables, running the cables through the tunnel must be cheaper than under the sea plus they're easier to maintain so does beg the question as to why it has only just been thought about?

There's already eletric wires in the tunnels but pesky trains keep using the power!!

Get rid of them and we can fill the southbound bore with power cables, pipe gas in the northbound bore, and use the service tunnel for cheese and wine going one way, marmite and bacon the other...
