In previous years the following sums have been spent by London and Continental Railways on the construction of sections one and two of the Channel Tunnel rail link (now known as High Speed 1), and the new Eurostar depot at Temple Mills:

£ million
2002 960
2003 932
2004 665
2005 637

Expenditure in 2006 is currently being finalised and will be subject to audit prior to being made public later this year.

Anticipated expenditure for this and future years is commercially sensitive to London and Continental Railways Limited as a private company, and therefore cannot be made public at this time.
