I think that I saw here on this forum some very interesting pic where railway tracks cross motorway (in same level) and i think it is A2 in Switzerland. Am I correct and can someone put link to that pic if it exists?

Thanks in advance

Here: http://forumfiles.milanotrasporti.or.../DSC04844.html

But it is used only when the hydraulic powerplant needs heavy machines, that is, maybe once every 10 years. Track and powerplant are there since the 1920s.

Well, I thought it's used rarely.

As far as I know, they kept the Gotthard Pass open during winter. With the tunnel nowadays, they don't go through the hassle of keeping this pass open, as it sees significant snow accumulation (several meters usually).

This can be inconvenient with the holidays in May, when a lot of people want to go for a quick vacation in Ticino, causing long queues at the tunnel, but the pass isn't open as an alternate route yet.

There were shuttle trains like the Loetschberg (even in summer).

As far I know the pass has never been always kept open during the winter. Maybe a little longer than today, like in 2001 when it was opened until december because of the fire in the tunnel. But this is considered too costly.

The problem is not only the work to remove snow but also the danger of avalanches.

When there wasn't the rail tunnel (opened in 1882) the only way to cross the pass were slides or by foot.

A2 above Faido (if only there wasn't this pylon...).

Vehciles were stopped before this short (325 m) tunnel to avoid queues in it. This queue was short, no more than 600 metres but...

...1500 m of trucks after it. On the other side there was no queue and this afternoon there were nearly nobody on both sides.

The Gotthard tunnel will be closed for three years, or for shorter periods of about 6 months for six years. The news has been reported by local newspapers today.
