Since the opening date on 1 June 2016, between 130 and 160 trains on an average working day operated through the Gotthard Base Tunnel, which in March 2019 marked the 100,000th transit. [note 3], The north portal lies in the north of the municipality of Erstfeld at an elevation of 460 m (1,510 ft), east of the Reuss. In order to accomplish this mega-project the political institutions also had to overcome many parliamentary sessions and several major popular votes, including the following:[65], Integration of the portals into the landscape, The new 4 km long open-air section from Rynächt to the north portal, Start of the new 7 km long open-air section from Giustizia to the south portal, The Pollegio Control Centre (near the south portal) with one of the four used TBM cutter heads on display. The two tunnels are joined approximately every 325 m (1,066 ft) by connecting galleries. [21] Passenger speed was also increased on the railway line with the use of tilting trains, notably the ICN, although maximum speed remaining far lower than on a modern straight high-speed line. The Seikan Tunnel in Japan and the Channel Tunnel between the United Kingdom and France are both in excess of 50 km (31 mi). The tunnel then passes below the valley of the Rein da Medel (Val Medel) and west of Lai da Sontga Maria. [citation needed], Construction on a second, parallel road tunnel was started.

The tunnel's constructor, AlpTransit Gotthard AG, originally planned to hand over the tunnel to Swiss Federal Railways (SBB CFF FFS) in operating condition in December 2016[16] but, on 4 February 2014, the handover date was changed to 5 June 2016 with the start of an 850-day opening countdown calendar on the AlpTransit homepage. [82], 67,000 tons on 120 trains passed through the tunnel each day during the first half year of operation.[84]. The GBT substantially contributes to the requirements of both laws and enables a direct flat route from the ports of the North Sea (notably Rotterdam) to those of the Mediterranean Sea (notably Genoa), via the Rhine corridor. In November 2015 a train travelled for the first time at the maximum test speed of 275 km/h through the world's longest railway tunnel. From the bottom of the valley, the tunnel proceeds towards the valley of the Rein da Nalps (Val Nalps) and passes east of Lai da Nalps, before crossing the Gannaretsch range below the western summit of Piz Vatgira (2,981 m (9,780 ft)).

Similarly to Gruner's idea, the GBT cuts through the Gotthard Massif some 600 m (2,000 ft) below the older tunnel. There were also the technical advantages of electrical engines and future technical improvements. Once the works on the first tunnel are finished, the Swiss government plans to operate one single lane in each tunnel (northbound traffic in the newly constructed tunnel, southbound traffic in the renovated one) in order to maintain the current tunnel overall capacity, in compliance with the Swiss constitutional norm that forbids a further growth of the traffic capacity across the Alps. [14] Drilling operations in the eastern tunnel were completed on 15 October 2010 in a breakthrough ceremony broadcast live on Swiss TV,[15] and in the western tunnel on 23 March 2011. If you have purchased the Swiss vignette, then you do not have to pay additional costs for the Gotthard tunnel.

The Alpine Initiative "for the protection of the Alpine region from transit traffic", which raised barriers against road tunnel construction, was initially blocked by the Swiss Parliament. In this category it is no longer the record-holder. This is viewed as a revolution, especially in the isolated region of Ticino, which is separated from the rest of the country by the Alps and the Gotthard. [5] The tunnel was built roughly parallel to the old railway tunnel, with portals a few hundred metres away from those of the railway. The closest railway stations to the portals are Altdorf and Biasca. Der Tunnel steigt von Göschenen her zuerst mit 5,82 ‰ Steigung auf einer Länge von 7822 Metern, bis er den Scheitelpunkt erreicht.

At 57 kilometres, the Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) is the longest railway tunnel in the world and represents the centrepiece of the New Rail Link through the Alps (NRLA). The tunnel provides a faster connection between the canton of Ticino and the rest of Switzerland, as well as between northern and southern Europe, cutting the Basel/Zürich–Lugano–Milan journey time for passenger trains by one hour (and from Lucerne to Bellinzona by 45 minutes). The GBT is 57 kilometers long and is conquered in only twenty minutes. [2] Although it is a motorway tunnel, part of the A2 from Basel to Chiasso, it consists of only one bidirectional tube with two lanes. Note the prevalence of coniferous trees and snow at the north portal and the absence of them at the south portal. A window allows visitors to watch the trains running in the tunnel. During 2016, the GBT was tested extensively[62][63] before its integration into the regular schedule on 11 December. In 1882, with the inauguration of the Gotthard Railway Tunnel, the travel time between Altdorf and Biasca was reduced dramatically to only hours, though often accompanied with overnight stays in huge Fin de siècle-hotels, for example in Biasca. The safety requirements on the rolling stock will be similar to those of other long Swiss tunnels, including the ability for the emergency brake to be overridden. Wir sorgen mit unseren technischen Einrichtungen und unserem Personal für Ihre Sicherheit während der Fahrt durch den Gotthard. [81], The number of projected trains per day was 180–260 freight trains and 50 (65 from 2020) passenger trains[5], After the opening of the tunnel there was an increase of passenger crossing the trans-alpine line, with 2.3 million passengers in the first 8 months, an increase of 30% over the previous year.

The Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT; German: Gotthard-Basistunnel, Italian: Galleria di base del San Gottardo, Romansh: Tunnel da basa dal Son Gottard) is a railway tunnel through the Alps in Switzerland. The Gotthard Pass is located halfway between Lake Lucerne and Lake Maggiore. To cut construction time in half, four access tunnels were built so that construction could start at four different sites simultaneously: Erstfeld, Amsteg, Sedrun, and Faido. From there, the tunnel runs parallel to the small valley of Etzli, below the Witenalpstock. [4][9] It is also the first flat route through the Alps or any other major mountain range, with a maximum height of 549 m (1,801 ft) above sea level,[4] corresponding to that of Bern. (Se også artikler, som begynder med Skt. In those days, it was still an adventure and it was only affordable to the rich. Control of its access routes led to the birth of the Swiss Confederacy. Before modern transport, the traverse of the pass took days, and snow makes it a challenge in winter.[20]. The two stations of Bellinzona and Lugano (respectively named "Gate of Ticino" and "Terrace of Ticino") were entirely renovated for the opening of the GBT, among other improvements. Both modern motorway and historic railway rely on heavy rockfall and avalanche protection equipments and are exposed to harsh weather condition in winter. Gotthardtunnelen under Skt.

A second law, the Alpine Protection Act of February 1994,[26] requires a shift of as much tonnage as possible from truck transport to train transport. This is the deepest point of the tunnel, with a rock layer of 2,450 m (8,040 ft) above it. Trains can move between the tunnels in the two multifunction stations at Sedrun and Faido. It posed a huge challenge for automobiles. Excluding subway tunnels that lie near the surface. [60] On the following weekend, popular festivities and special exhibitions, attended by more than 100,000 visitors, were held. Because of ever-increasing international truck traffic, Swiss voters chose a shift in transportation policy in September 1992 by accepting the NRLA proposal.

[12], The Swiss government has decided to upgrade the second tunnel into a full road tunnel in order to allow for the necessary reconstruction of the first road tunnel. Refilling water boilers of steam locomotives was no longer necessary. It was a once-daily service from Flüelen railway station to Biasca railway station and in reverse. The goal of both the laws is to transport trucks, trailers and freight containers through Switzerland, from Basel to Chiasso, and beyond by rail to relieve the overused roads, and that of the Gotthard in particular, by using intermodal freight transport and rolling highways (where the entire truck is transported). [note 4]. Transit time was further dramatically reduced with the opening of the Gotthard Road Tunnel and the finalization of the northern part of A2 motorway through the Urner Reusstal (in close proximity to the railway), with many additional tunnels (then leading from Basel to the Gotthard Road Tunnel), in 1980. Despite reports that petrol was the cause of the fire, the truck that was hit was a diesel truck. The road between Göschenen and Airolo through the summit of the pass, comporting notably the Schöllenen ravine and the Tremola, had countless hairpin turns and serpentine curves, dropping 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) in altitude. [18], The Gotthard Base Tunnel, with a length of 57.09 km (35.47 mi) and a total of 151.84 km (94.3 mi) of tunnels, shafts and passages, is the longest railway tunnel in the world,[note 2] with a geodetic distance of 55.782 km (34.661 mi) between the two portals. After two or three more kilometres, the border between the cantons of Uri and Ticino is passed; after another 7 kilometres (4.3 mi), the tunnel ends at the southern portal near to Airolo (1,146 m (3,760 ft)). It is the third Swiss tunnel to bear this title, after the Gotthard Tunnel (15 kilometres or 9.3 miles, 1882) and the Simplon Tunnel (19.8 kilometres or 12.3 miles, 1905). As early as 1947, engineer Eduard Gruner imagined a two-story base tunnel from Amsteg to Biasca, both rail and road, with a stop at Sedrun, to provide a faster and flatter passage through the Swiss Alps. It connects Göschenen with Airolo and was the first tunnel through the Saint-Gotthard Massif in order to bypass the St Gotthard Pass.It is built as one double-track, standard gauge tunnel. A statue of St. Barbara, protector of miners stands in the NEAT Gotthard Base Tunnel, the world's longest and deepest rail tunnel, during its official opening in Amsteg, Switzerland June 1, 2016.

It remains a single bore tunnel with just one lane operating in each direction. Unlike most other tunnels, the Gotthard Base Tunnel passes under several distinct mountain massifs, two of them being major subranges of the Alps, the Glarus Alps and the Saint-Gotthard Massif, with the valley of the Anterior Rhine, the Surselva in the canton of Graubünden, between them. For instance, carbon monoxide is highly toxic at very low concentrations; having this trapped in a confined space allows concentrations to build well beyond a fatal level. The Gotthard Tunnel is the core and culminating point of the A2 motorway in Switzerland, running south from Basel through the tunnel down to Chiasso on the border with Italy. A fifth at Bodio was added later. Faido portal (maintenance access), 757 m (2,484 ft) a.s.l.
