M25 to Lille and Paris from Ebbsfleet

ebbsfleet eurostar international station
From the autumn of 2007 when the second section of the new high-speed rail link that runs from just south of Gravesend to London St Pancras opens, there will be a new international station at EBBSFLEET for Eurostar just off the M25 and A2 near Bluewater and Dartford , which will provide high speed services to Lille in 1h10 and Paris in 2h05. With 9000 parking spaces this promises to provide a good departure point for those who do not live in Central London and makes flying from London in these times of lengthy security delays quite unattractive.

There will be another “International” station at Stratford in East London which will open later, and Ashford International will still be a stop for some trains. When the new sections are completed a full 20 minutes will be cut from the current journey time from Central London to Lille and Paris. The current best time from London (Waterloo) to Paris (Gare du Nord) is 2h35 and to Lille 1h40,
Lille will become even more important in the network as it provides high-speed train TGV connections to many destinations in France without having to change stations in Paris – and of course Eurostar run some services direct from the UK to Avignon and the French Alpes.
