A1, Extension of the Zurich Northern Bypass

The main construction work for the Weiningen motorway exit and the covered road section will start on August 16, 2021. The Weiningen exit will be relocated and moved around 200m closer to the Limmattalerkreuz junction. In addition, all three Gubrist tunnel tubes will be extended by a new 100m covered motorway section. This will reduce the noise and pollution levels of the adjacent residential areas. From mid-August, the top pavement layer of the roadway in the new third Gubrist tunnel tube will be installed over a period of approximately 3 weeks. Thus, most of the construction work will have been completed. In autumn 2021, installation of the traffic control and safety systems for the third Gubrist tunnel tube will start.

R+R has moved

Since June 1, 2021, the R+R offices have been moved into new premises on the 6th floor of the Duplex building in Baden at Brown Boveri Strasse 12. As before, we are still at a very central location within the city of Baden. As you notice, we also took the opportunity to update our website. We hope you enjoy the new content, and we look forward to welcoming you in our new offices at the next opportunity.

Oslo T-bane: CBTC project reaches important milestone

Oslo has an extensive metro network, the oldest in Scandinavia. Five lines serve 101 stations, and, in the central section, trains run every minute. Today, three different interlocking technologies are in use, some of which are already quite old. Over the next few years, operations will be converted to the communication-based train control system CBTC. At the beginning of February, four suppliers submitted initial offers for the system’s introduction and operation in the following twenty-five years. R+R supports the customer Sporveien with the evaluation of offers and the upcoming negotiations.

ETCS introduction in Finland

As part of the Europe-wide introduction of the interoperable train control system ETCS, Finland is examining the right strategy for the country. Fintraffic Rail develops pioneering digital solutions under the “Digirail” label. By the beginning of 2020, a wide range of variants had been presented, for which R + R provided rough estimates of the life cycle costs. In the meantime, Fintraffic Rail has derived an ideal solution and has examined it in depth. At the beginning of 2021, R + R developed a refined cost estimate and compared it with the costs of a fallback solution. In addition, R + R supports the assessment of cost uncertainty and the cost consequences of risks.

We tie economics and engineering together

Transport facilities should enable safe, reliable and cost-efficient transport, protect people and the environment, achieve great effectiveness and be beneficial and lucrative.

The more the demands of operators and users, the concerns of environmental protection, and the interests of investors as well as taxpayers are in balance, the easier it is to realise and run transport facilities efficiently.

R+R combines competencies in technical and civil engineering, infrastructure management, transport economics, environmental and spatial analysis, as well as project management.

We ensure a balance between financial expenditure and sustainable benefit from infrastructure and transport operations.

Our principles
Our professional approach is based on the principles of systems engineering. This requires consistent definition and structuring of projects, making the diverse network of complex tasks more manageable. A time-efficient project flow is ensured and allows parallel processing of part assignments.

R+R constantly monitors the entire process and guides it with foresight and appropriate to the respective project stage.

  • systematic, holistic thinking
  • well-defined boundaries
  • well-defined objectives
  • well-defined procedures and processes
  • coherent and firm decisions
  • broad and balanced information for all parties involved

Competencies in the entire life cycle of facilities
R+R assesses and evaluates facilities in their natural, technical, economical and social environment. This includes the entire life cycle of facilities: planning, construction, operation, utilisation, maintenance and renewal. Far-reaching standards are set for the sustainability of the transport system - for its effectiveness, economy, ecology.

Identifying and solving conflicts
One of our special strengths is the ability to recognise conflicts of interest, and to find mutually satisfying solutions. Open-mindedness, flexibility, and autonomy in judgment represent the most important company principles.

International Open-Mindedness
Our national and international connections allow us to apprehend and incorporate new, relevant developments in a constructive and critical manner, and to establish important partnerships.

Quality management
Our management system has been certified in accordance with the SN EN ISO 9001 standards since 1998.







Our multidisciplinary team suits to our assignments

Civil engineers, economists, spatial planners and environmental engineers form unbiased and powerful teams of experts. This enables us to meet the many different requirements in complex and interdisciplinary projects.

Company history

R+R has operated successfully for more than 25 years.

The R+R team was formed at the end of the 1980s around Dr. Rudolf Burger, then as part of the Motor Columbus Group. In 1994 we ventured into entrepreneurship by founding R+R in Baden. From the very beginning, the employees have played a key role as shareholders of the new company. In 2000 we opened our branch office in Bern.

Today the company is entirely owned by its employees and is completely independent of other companies and interests.






Shape the future of mobility with us

A train control system in Norway, the maintenance of the Swiss national motorway network or the analysis of an urban public transport system - by working on large and innovative infrastructure projects, you will help to shape the future of mobility in Switzerland and abroad.

We achieve our ambitious goals as a team, flat hierarchies ensure efficient and dynamic project execution.

You work independently of time and location - in our modern office space, on the train or at home - wherever it suits you. We also offer you a wide and varied range of internal and external training opportunities.

Our company is owned by our employees - you will also have the opportunity to hold shares yourself.
