Security fee for Tunnel Freight

A security fee on rail freight traffic through the Channel tunnel is planned for next year by France’s rail network manager. The fee, which could be as much as 600 euros per train, is to cover┬ásafety provision for trains making an obligatory stop to change locomotives in a transit zone near the French entrance to the tunnel.

The French authorities have drawn up strict surveillance regulations due to the constant presence of migrants attempting to access the UK and the risk of terrorist attacks.

So state rail freight operator Fret SNCF has taken on the responsibility and the cost of protecting the zone, working with police and customs.

However, as private rail freight operators take an increasing share of traffic through the tunnel, SNCF has indicated to RFF that it is no longer appropriate for it to carry out the role.
