New film about the Gotthard project of the century in the year 2015

In the Gotthard Base Tunnel the railway systems have been successfully installed. The test runs at speeds of up to 275 km/h have started successfully. A total of 3 500 runs are necessary to provide the proof of functionality. In the Ceneri Base Tunnel, the first breakthrough to Vezia has been achieved. A milestone for the Ticino. At the north portal, the long railway viaduct is structurally complete and can be handed over to the railway systems contractor.

This, and many further important milestones, was achieved in 2015. The film by AlpTransit Gotthard Ltd. documents the progress of construction with impressive scenes. Throughout the year, a camera team followed the work on the various AlpTransit construction sites to the north and south of the Gotthard. The result is an approximately 18-minute film, which documents the progress in spectacular sequences.

The AlpTransit Gotthard Ltd. annual film for 2015 is now available in three language versions (German, Italian, English). The DVD, which costs CHF 30, can be ordered with prepayment on the Internet (, or purchased directly at the AlpTransit information centres in Erstfeld and Pollegio, or at the headquarters of AlpTransit Gotthard Ltd. in Lucerne. The DVD is also available from the RailShop at Lucerne railway station.
