A14, motorway maintenance project Buchrain-Rütihof

At the beginning of April 2022, construction work will start on the N14 motorway section between the Gisikon and Rütihof junctions. The task includes maintenance of the drainage system as well as pavement replacement and renewal of the guard rails and animal fences over the entire section.

The traffic installations required for the maintenance work will also be used to enable renewal of the expansion joints on the 420 m long Reuss bridge. R+R is contracted by the Federal Roads Office as client’s support staff and external site management unit.

A1, Extension of the Zurich Northern Bypass

Twenty years ago, a serious fire disaster occurred in the Gotthard motorway tunnel. To commemorate this event, the «SRF Aktuell» TV program has produced a report on road tunnel safety in Switzerland, which was broadcast on October 21, 2021. Many lessons have been learned from this disaster. By using the third tube of the Gubrist tunnel, now under construction, as an example, the FEDRO project managers explain recent developments concerning the safety of road tunnels.

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.
