N01.22 Motorway section Schönbühl – Kirchberg, Lindenrain rest area upgrade

The service building at the Lindenrain motorway rest area has been equipped with a new toilet module made of chrome steel; construction was completed at the end of 2023. The new toilet module offers better protection against vandalism, and it will be possible to continue its use in the event of a future replacement of the service building. R+R supported the Federal Road Office’s overall project manager in project planning and execution.

ERTMS Netherlands

Other countries, same problems: Modern railway technology requires time and money to implement. Jost Lüking was member of a team of six European experts on the ETCS train control system who assessed the status of the national ETCS program for the Dutch Parliament in mid-2023. Our Second Opinion formulated recommendations on program governance and management, on the technical, spatial and temporal scope of the program, on system integration and integration management, and last but not least on program costs and their current forecast. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Waterways published the Second Opinion at the beginning of November.

EP Hagnau – Augst N02

Within the Hagnau – Augst motorway maintenance project, structural changes to the western tunnel portal (direction Basel/Germany) have to be carried out to enable longitudinal ventilation in both traffic directions. We are pleased that the plans for the extension of the western portal of Schweizerhalle tunnel have officially been approved. This allows us to finalise the detailed design and approach the contractor submission process according to our project schedule.

A4 KLEINANDELFINGEN – WINTERTHUR INTERSECTION ELIMINATION OF BOTTLENECKS

Regular difficulties due to traffic overloads must be expected during the morning and evening peak hours on the A4 between Winterthur and Kleinandelfingen. The capacity of the existing road, which has one lane in each direction, is no longer adequate for the volume of traffic. This is unsatisfactory in terms of road safety. Shortcomings such as the lack of a separating barrier between the directions repeatedly cause serious traffic accidents.

When the section of the A4 between Kleinandelfingen and Winterthur-North was originally built, an extension to provide four lanes was planned (General Project approved in 1973). Due to resistance from the affected residents and the objections that were submitted, only the two western lanes were built and commissioned in 1996 and 1999/2000 respectively. The enlargement of the A4 between Winterthur and Kleinandelfingen to provide a national highway that meets the standard, with two lanes and one hard shoulder in each direction, is an element of the «Programme to Eliminate Bottlenecks on the National Highways Network».

The development project comprises various major structures such as bridges, overpasses, underpasses, coverings and road runoff treatment plants, with the Weinlandbrücke bridge over the Thur which is outstanding in many respects. In parallel with the enlargement work, the existing structure is to be repaired and adapted in line with currently valid standards and guidelines. For this reason, the project design work is divided into the maintenance concept, the concept and project for the measures to be taken, the main execution project and the detailed project.

R+R is assisting the client by providing support for FEDRO’s overall project management in the areas of project management and project controlling, and with selected issues such as the assessment of alternatives and cost-benefit analyses.
