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.

ERTMS PROGRAMME NORWAY

Norway intends to replace its entire national railway signalling system by 2032 and switch to the European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2. The program covers approximately 4‘400 kilometres of track and 500 vehicles.

R+R’s involvement in Norway’s national ERTMS implementation programme on behalf of the Norwegian railway infrastructure operator Bane Nor started in 2013. R+R devised the programme budget, which was independently assessed and accepted without reservation by the governmental department and parliament. In addition, R+R developed life cycle cost models and conducted cost-benefit analyses for comparing different contract strategies.

R+R managed the commercial portion of the procurement of the signalling system, traffic management system and on-board equipment. The repective contracts were finally awarded in 2018. R+R is keeping the estimate of final costs up-to-date and examines budget change requests.
