With state-of-the-art equipment at their disposal, it seems that nothing stands in the way of today's tunnel engineers. This video segment adapted from Building Big, details the technical challenges involved in completing the Channel Tunnel, an underwater tunnel that links England and France for the first time ever, and shows how building teams from the two countries met those challenges.
