Oslo T-bane CBTC-Project

After two tendering rounds with, at first, four tenderers, Sporveien, the operator of Oslo City’s public transport system, awarded the contract for equipping the metro with a CBTC system to Siemens. R+R has edited the price formats, evaluated the commercial tenders, and supported the negotiations. At the same time, in the Datalink sub-project, Sporveien procures the communication services and the necessary upgrading of the communication infrastructure.

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.

A1 SCHÖNBÜHL – KIRCHBERG ELIMINATION OF BOTTLENECKS

Steady growth in traffic is causing more and more congestion on Swiss motorways. The «Programme to Eliminate Bottlenecks on the National Highways Network» allows for the expansion and development of heavily utilised motorway sections. In the agglomeration around Berne, these are the sections Wankdorf – Muri and Wankdorf – Schönbühl – Kirchberg.

The February 26th, 2014, federal decree concerning the release of funds for the second period of the «Programme to Eliminate Bottlenecks on the National Highways Network» includes the section between Schönbühl and Kirchberg (six lanes) as part of module 3. This module comprises projects considered relevant by the Federal Council, albeit with a slightly lower priority. The planning process is going ahead, while the funding for their ultimate execution remains unsettled. A major constraint lies in the requirement that the neighbouring project Wankdorf – Schönbühl must be realized ahead of the project Schönbühl – Kirchberg. Simultaneous to the expansion project, the existing infrastructure is to be refurbished. At present, the General Project as well as the Maintenance Concept are being generated.

R+R’s function within the project Schönbühl – Kirchberg (six lanes) is in an advisory and supporting role for the general project management team of the Federal Roads Office. It includes sevices in project management throughout all stages of the project up to completion and commissioning. Aside from continuous professional supervision and assistance to project management, the mandate includes administrative tasks for project planning (project organiziation and structure, project manual, project platform), procurement, coordination between project designers as well as neighbouring and third-party projects, quality control of project planning tasks, performance supervision as well as continuous planning and monitoring of costs (cost estimation and multiannual budgeting).
