Let's face it, in a Network there is always a bottleneck (minimal cut).

«Construction Site Open Day»: 6'200 visitors in Sigirino (Ceneri tunnel)

Affluenza record di visitatori durante la giornata delle porte aperte organizzata da AlpTransit San Gottardo SA e svoltasi oggi, sabato 16 maggio 2009 al cantiere di Sigirino. 6’200 visitatori hanno colto l’occasione per toccare con mano i lavori iniziati nell’aprile 2006.

Già dalle prime ore del mattino l’affluenza di pubblico è stata notevole: 6'200 visitatori provenienti da tutta la Svizzera e anche dalla vicina Lombardia hanno raggiunto il cantiere AlpTransit di Sigirino. I visitatori hanno potuto ammirare di prima persona, lungo un percorso appositamente creato, i lavori già eseguiti sul cantiere di Sigirino. L’attrazione principale di quest’anno consisteva in una visita in sotterraneo all’imponente sistema di caverne operative, che sarà il vero e proprio punto nevralgico per la logistica di cantiere.

Le spiegazioni tecniche sono state fornite, ad ogni tappa del percorso, dai collaboratori di AlpTransit San Gottardo SA, della Direzione locale dei lavori e delle imprese.

Il pubblico ha così potuto toccare con mano i lavori di costruzione della Galleria di base del Ceneri e rendersi conto della grandiosità di quest’opera.

La Rete Uno della Radio della Svizzera Italiana RSI ha seguito in diretta con la sua radiomobile la giornata tastando il polso ai visitatori e organizzando programmi speciali inerenti le tematiche delle trasversali ferroviarie alpine.

La Galleria di base del Ceneri verrà messa in esercizio nel 2019 e costituisce un tassello fondamentale della linea di pianura della nuova linea ferroviaria attraverso le Alpi.

They said that they hadn't the money to replace trolleybuses and old parts of overhead wires (about 30 to 50 million € all included). But they found 200 millions for a road tunnel and other road infrastructures. The local authorities are now planning a tramway, but there is no money at the moment.

i think trolley buses should be used much more, especially considering 0 emissions

one of the reasons i like swiss small towns is that a lot of them have / had .. trolleybuses


anyway, great progress on gotthard :o

The east TBM of the Erstfeld-Amsteg section is stopped 23 m before the end of its section of tunnel since a few days. It will wait here until the 16th June, because the event will be broadcasted live by the Swiss televison.

The west TBM has still 1,4 km to excavate.
