Re: Gubrist Tunnel

Driving towards Zurich into the tunnel, I've come to the conclusion that it's not actually the tunnel where the bottleneck occurs, but rather where the traffic joins the motorway from sliproads before the tunnel. Once all the traffic has merged, it seems to go ok.

Re: Gubrist Tunnel

Any news on that third tunnel? I've been doing the ZH commute for almost a month now and the Gubrist tunnel is definitely a pain. Having said that, its still nothing compared to the M25 Western Stretch <Crosses himself>

Re: Gubrist Tunnel

It says here, that construction is starting in 2012. Bad news is, it'll take 7 years to complete.
