Future begins with a construction site.Information on trackwork in Ticino in 2019.
In 2019, too, TILO customers must expect numerous construction sites on the lines and in the stations. This work is necessary for the opening of the Ceneri Base Tunnel, scheduled for the end of 2020.
It lacks two years for the commissioning of the Ceneri base tunnel and the 4-meter corridor project. Until then, zealous building is going on between Basel and Chiasso. About 25 construction projects are planned, several of them in Ticino. Once completed, rail traffic in Ticino will be revolutionized, with travel times almost cut in half between major centers.
Some of the construction sites that will affect the TILO lines in 2019 are the doubling of the line between Cadenzzo and Tenero, the connections to the Ceneri base tunnel in Giubiasco and Vezia and the renovation of the railway infrastructure of Chiasso train station. A summary document about the most important construction sites in Ticino can be downloaded below.
TILO and SBB seek out constantly for solutions to limit the inconvenience for the passengers, and are trying to do so by including the planned trackwork in the future timetables. If this is not possible, TILO and SBB will develop precise communication actions to inform the customers and other measures to guarantee the regular train circulation.
