  • NEW ALPINE RAILROAD TRANSVERSAL

    GILGEN Switzerland

    NEW ALPINE RAILROAD TRANSVERSAL

    State-of-the-art Drive Units for Tunnel Safety Doors

    For more than a century most of the north-south railroad traffic traversed the Swiss Alps at 1,200 meters above sea level. These became outdated with the need to transfer international freight from road to rail. A more efficient solution was created by boring new tunnels through the Alps at a level 400 meters lower. The new Loetschberg tunnel consists of two tubes, each of 34.6 kilometers in length, and a safety system requiring special doors to link the tunnels every 333 meters.
