[edit] Information

The cutting edge of technological infrastructure, the Gotthard Base Tunnel is set to become the world's longest rail tunnel, creating a flat rail link for future travel through the Alps. Trains will be able to race at speeds exceeding 250 km/h, and passengers will be able to travel the length and breadth of the mighty Alps with ease.

But, such a project doesn't come without risks. With temperatures plummeting to sub-zero levels during harsh winters, boring the tunnel has become a slow, uncomfortable task for drilling teams. And with the arrival of spring, thawing ice creates floods that further hinder the project. Moreover, the unexpectedly high levels of quartz dust pose a serious health risk to the workers. Join engineers as they battle a tight schedule, cruel conditions and the whims of mother nature to complete what will ultimately be one of the longest-running, most impressive construction projects ever.
