We know there are times where you may require additional assistance or would like to escalate your feedback to a complaint. We seek to handle all complaints as quickly and fairly as possible.
Internal dispute resolution
Complaints relating to the Metro Tunnel Project must first be submitted for Internal Dispute Resolution.
We will attempt to resolve the matter when you contact us via the Project Information Line or online. If your concern cannot be resolved quickly, it will be assigned to a case manager for further investigation. A response will be provided that is fair and honest.
If you are dissatisfied with the initial outcome you may request that the matter be referred to a senior manager for review. Call the Metro Tunnel Information Line and ask for the matter to be escalated. You will be advised in writing of the outcome of this review.
External dispute resolution
