The joint venture (JV) between Implenia (60%) and Frutiger (40%) have secured the EUR 446.69 million (CHF 430 million) contract for the Sisikon Tunnel (lot 200) of the Neue N4 Axenstrasse project. Its size and complexity make this lot the focal point of the new road running along the eastern shore of Lake Uri/Lake Lucerne.

The contract centres on the single-tube, 4.4 km two-way road tunnel, which the JV will blast through the rock. The order is subject to a consultation period lasting until the end of July 2024. Construction of the lot is scheduled to start in mid-2025, and the work should be completed by 2034.
