• Final breakthrough for Gotthard – longest railway tunnel in the world

    18 November 2010

    On 15 October 2010 in the east tunnel, 30 km from the north portal and 27 km from the south portal, the final breakthrough of the Gotthard, the longest rail tunnel in the world, took place.

    At about 14:30, the tunnel boring machine, drilling from Faido, broke through the last metre of rock on the route to Sedrun.

    The new base tunnel will make the Swiss – and also European – transport policy more sustainable.

    At the breakthrough point deep inside the mountain, a little over 6 km south of Sedrun, about 200 people, including Transport Minister Moritz Leuenberger and other guests of honour, witnessed the breakthrough by the tunnel boring machine.

    About 3500 miners and others involved in the project, including current and former engineers, planners, geologists and surveyors, followed the breakthrough on big screens at various venues and Swiss TV broadcast the event live throughout Switzerland and internationally.
