A1 Autobahn will be widened, 4 to 6 lanes

Wonderful news on the radio today, a part of the Zurich to Bern Autobahn is to be widened! Planning can now go ahead, and a new bridge is required over the river Aare, the CHF 800 million has been approved.

Then came the sting: if everything goes OK, they hope to open the widened section, ONLY 22 kms from Härkingen (Junction to Basel) to Luterbach (Junction to Solothurn) in ..... 2028, that's in 13 years time!

And in the meantime the roadworks will make it even worse than it is now...

My thoughts too. Yay, we don't have enough roadworks in Switzerland. I hope these ones will go on all through winter as well as summer for the full 12 years.

Re: A1 Autobahn will be widened, 4 to 6 lanes

surely cheaper just to get all the Swiss to actually use the inside lane and not sit in the middle lane at 100

Well that's on top of the three lane section already in place between Zofingen and Harkingen, which was the main bottleneck, being a combination of all Bern<=>Zurich A1 and all Basel<=>Gotthard A2 traffic. And one or two other stretches already widened, like closer to Bern, from Wankdorf, and ISTR around the Solothurn exit as well. So it's not the only bit, but more of a joining up of the existing bits.

Enforced by snipers. The police could then use the proper guns instead of the radar ones, and instead of tax collecting they could make everyone's life easier

I guess it will mean 15 years of sitting idle on the road waiting for construction to get done until it's done. Great fun.

Re: A1 Autobahn will be widened, 4 to 6 lanes

Mostly all the drivers here are like sheeps .They follow aways only one and the most of the time main road .
A1 the most ridiculous point is Gubrist tunes .They already remove all the bridges on the way so they already start but as aways it will take a lot's of time ....

Actually, and bearing in mind the s u c c e s s f u l talks in Paris which ended which such joy and will u n d o u b t e d l y lead to our environment being saved, I'm surprised we are going ahead with such plans.

That's because they have added another tunnel for Gubrist and getting ready for it's completion.

Gosh. 1 year and 36,000,000 CHF per kilometer?

Let's call it 3 meters and 100,000 CHF per day.
