Implenia back at the Gotthard – Ground-breaking Ceremony for the second Tube of the Gotthard Road Tunnel Featured

Ceremony by the Swiss Federal Roads Office (FEDRO) to mark the ground-breaking for the second tube of the Gotthard road tunnel. Implenia is significantly involved in two lots. The complex tunnel and civil engineering works have already started.

At the invitation of FEDRO, the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of the second tube of the Gotthard road tunnel took place at two ceremonies in Göschenen and Airolo. A few months ago, Implenia was awarded the contracts for the two preparatory lots "Relocation of the north safety tunnel" and "North access shaft and logistics excavations" and has started the complex tunnelling and civil engineering work.

In November 2020, Implenia was awarded the contract for the first lot of the preparatory work, the relocation of the north safety tunnel (Lot 242), worth CHF 12.6 million, with a project duration of two years.

The second lot (Lot 243) consists of the access shaft to provide access to the "northern disruption zone" and the logistics excavations to accommodate an underground concrete plant. This lot, with a total volume of CHF 86.6 million and a planned construction period of around 2.5 years, was awarded to the "secondo tubo" joint venture led by Implenia in March 2021. Implenia has a 40% share in the joint venture, the partners Webuild Group/csc another 40% and Frutiger 20%. Construction started last spring.

The allocation of the preparatory lots for the second tube of the Gotthard road tunnel preceded the publication of the invitation to tender for the two large main lots by several months. The bids for the two main lots north and south will be submitted in November of this year. The contracts are expected to be awarded in the second quarter of 2022. Between 2001 and 2014, Implenia played a major role in the construction of the Gotthard Base Tunnel for the railway, a contract worth CHF 2.84 billion in total.

André Wyss, CEO of Implenia, on the ground-breaking ceremony: "Implenia is back at the Gotthard. The second tube of the road tunnel is a key infrastructure project for Switzerland and Europe. We are delighted that we are once again able to apply our many years of experience and proven expertise in managing large and complex infrastructure projects at the Gotthard."
