Switzerland, Ceneri - ch/14

High Speed Railway

The Swiss Federal Supreme Court has upheld two appeals against decisions of the Swiss Federal Administrative Court of March, 2014 in connection with the award of railway infrastructure systems for the Ceneri Base Tunnel. The judgements of the Federal Administrative Court have been annulled. The original decisions of AlpTransit Gotthard Ltd for the awards are confirmed: Railway Track & Logistics lot to the Mons Ceneris Consortium, under the lead management of Mancini&Marti AG, Bellinzona ; the Railway Systems & Overall Coordination lot to the CPC Consortium, under the lead management of Cablex AG, Berne.

The formerly planned date for opening the Ceneri Base Tunnel to commercial traffic along with the revised railway timetable in December, 2019 therefore remains the goal of AlpTransit Gotthard Ltd.
