N08.52 Spiez – Interlaken West maintenance project

Project overview

The overhaul of the 15-kilometre section of the N08 motorway includes the track with slow traffic management in places and a cantonal road character, two tunnels, 64 engineering structures and 70 retaining walls. The location is particularly challenging: part of the road is situated directly between Lake Thun, the railway line and the rock face; there is therefore limited space available in which to work.
