Track for the Gotthard Base Tunnel
The Gotthard Base Tunnel is scheduled to open in 2016.
A natural approach to river bank protection and flood defence
The station needs to be extended within the confined space available.
Engineers and ecologists are using deadwood, tree trunk groynes, gravel banks and many other measures to breathe new life into the Alte Aare (canton of Bern) while at the same time improving flood protection.
