A1 expansion northern Zurich bypass

The commissioning of the third tube of the Gubrist tunnel has been postponed until spring 2023 due to the current global economic situation (Covid).

During the night of April 22/23, 2023, there will be a "silent opening" of the third tube to regular traffic. A public festival and the authorities’ event are expected to take place in mid-April 2023.

In early May 2023, the renovation work of the existing second Gubrist tube will start. Westbound traffic (direction Bern) will be accomodated on two lanes in the new third tube, while eastbound traffic (direction St. Gallen) will occupy two lanes in the first tube.

METRO COPENHAGEN, NEW SIGNALLING SYSTEM ANALYSIS (NSSA)

Lines M1 and M2 of the driverless Copenhagen Metro are to receive a new signalling system. In a study of technical options, process scenarios, migration strategies and procurement solutions, R+R estimated life cycle costs for 18 different alternatives.

The driverless Copenhagen Metro consists of two unconnected line systems, M1/M2 and M3/M4. M1 was put into operation in 2002, M2 in 2007. Their signalling system will reach the end of its technical life in 2027. It was supplied by Ansaldo / Hitachi and is basically also operated by them. The existing system will be replaced by a system at least as modern as the one used on the Cityring, which opened in 2019. The Danish engineering company Rambøll was commissioned to examine technical solutions, process scenarios, migration strategies and procurement options. R+R has estimated the life cycle costs 2021-2065 for 18 strategic alternatives and analyzed the costs for capacity improvements with the existing system.
