HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c29W
5. Mr. Holland

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what are the estimates respectively of (a) British Rail and (b) Eurotunnel of the additional number of passengers in the peak summer period who will be using Waterloo station as a terminus for Channel fixed link traffic in 1993 and 2003.

Mr. David Mitchell

Eurotunnel's estimates of Channel tunnel through rail passenger traffic do not distinguish between Waterloo and other United Kingdom locations. British Rail's consultants, who concluded that the road and underground systems would be able to accommodate the Channel tunnel traffic at Waterloo, based their assessment on 50,000 extra day time passengers in 1993 rising to 59,000 in 2003.
