TRAIN SERVICES BACK ON TRACK 

Trains services between Folkestone and Dover have resumed after the repairs to three railway tunnels between the towns was  successfully completed.

For more than four months, a bus service operated between Dover Priory  and the Folkestone railway stations while the £10m maintenance project was carried out.

The 160-year-old  Shakespeare, Abbotscliffe and Martello tunnels had their brickwork repointed and repaired and more than 5km of new track was laid in the tunnels.
