Find out here all you need to know about Ceneri 2020.
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.
In a joint statement of intent entitled 'Chance Ceneri 2020', Richard Lutz, Andreas Meyer and Gianfranco Battisti, the CEOs of DB, SBB and FS Italiane, agreed to join forces to make this quantum leap for Europe's mobility. Their aim is faster and more frequent services for freight and passengers, improved punctuality and simpler purchasing of international tickets.
