Switzerland, Canton Vaud - ch/97


Kummler Matter EVT SA from  Le Mont-sur-Lausanne secured the EUR8.49 million (CHF).67 million) contract, excluding VAT, for supply and installation of Safety Equipment on the LEB (Lausanne-Flon – Cheseaux). The Lausanne-Echallens-Bercher railway line currently operates on two systems of security installations. The system deployed on the Lausanne Flon - Cheseaux section will be obsolete soon. The rest of the line is equipped with a newer system. At the same time and with a view to improving safety, the LEB will extend the Chauderon tunnel under the Avenue d'Echallens, to the Union-Prilly station, to put this part of the line underground.

With the arrival of this new tunnel, the renewal of safety installations on the Lausanne-Flon-Cheseaux section must be made, in order to improve the operation of the line and optimize the maintenance of these facilities.
