Thanks to this new section, which will enter service on 14 November, journeys between Paris and London will take 2 hours 15 minutes, instead of the 2 hours 35 minutes they take today, and St Pancras station will become the arrival point for all the Alstom-built Eurostar trains.

Earlier this year, Alstom and joint venture partners Carillion and TSO delivered the track and overhead power lines of the final section of the line, linking Ebsfleet (Kent) with St Pancras station in central London. The work involved the installation of 40 kilometres of double track, half of which is in tunnels, the overhead lines, management of railway access on behalf of other contractors and system integration tests. It also included the management of the overall commissioning of these integrated systems.

As of 14 November, Eurostar services have been sharing the section between Ebbsfleet and London's Waterloo station with suburban trains. The new section of the line will be reserved exclusively for Eurostar high-speed trains, and as of 2009, high-speed regional trains
Roland Kientz, Senior Vice President North Europe, Alstom Transport, comments: “Eurostar was the first truly European train in terms of design, construction and operation, and the completion of the new line brings the UK closer than ever to Paris and Brussels. We are proud to have had a part in bringing this project to fruition”.
