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.

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.
