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.

Trafikverket ETCS Cost and Strategy Studies

Sweden is a pioneer in the development of the European Train Control System ETCS and has already equipped a number of railway lines with ETCS level 2. The deployment throughout the entire Swedish railway network is planned for the near future.

Sweden provided cost data from its own ETCS projects for a European benchmarking exercise. The result induced Trafikverket, the operator of the Swedish railway network, to ask for validation of the cost estimate for the national ETCS rollout with regard to plausibility and completeness. Together with Morten Søndergaard, the director of the Danish signalling programme, R+R conducted a study on costs and strategies. The final report presents recommendations to support the cost estimate and strategic potentials to improve economic efficiency.
