Ceneri 2020 – a quantum leap for European mobility.

With its "new rail link through the Alps" project (NRLA), Switzerland is providing modern and efficient railway infrastructure on the Europe's North-South transport corridor through the Alps – as an environmentally-friendly alternative to road-borne freight and passenger traffic. Once the Ceneri base tunnel becomes operational in December 2020, the NRLA routes will be complete. The age-old dream of a level-track rail route through the Alps will be a reality. 

Events to mark the opening of the Ceneri base tunnel and the completion of the NRLA.

The festivities to mark the opening of the Ceneri Base Tunnel and the completion of the NRLA are being planned jointly by the federal government, AlpTransit Gotthard AG (ATG) and SBB. In view of the coronavirus pandemic, the organising committee has decided to scale down the events planned. The Federal Council was advised of this decision at its meeting on 20 May.

News.

The festivities to mark the opening of the Ceneri Base Tunnel (CBT) and the completion of the New Rail Link through the Alp (NRLA) in September will be significantly more low-key than originally planned because of the corona pandemic. The decision has been taken not to invite guests and the transport ministers’ meeting will take place by video conference. The Ceneri Base Tunnel is still expected to come into operation in December 2020.
