Engineering work updates.

We are currently carrying out the following work:

The track was opened in December 2019. We are currently carrying out finishing work scheduled for completion in summer 2020. 

This mainly involves daytime work. However, for safety reasons, some work will have to be done at night. Furthermore, to guarantee the safety and punctuality of trains, SBB has to carry out maintenance work on its rail network.
