Overview of the main construction sites
Information on construction sites in Ticino for 2021.
With the increase in services thanks to the opening of the Ceneri Base Tunnel, a safe and efficient rail network is of paramount importance. So in 2021, important work is due to be carried out on Ticino's railway lines. Indeed, in 2021, important construction sites that have been delayed due to the closures caused by the pandemic will be completed and maintenance work will be carried out on both the infrastructure and the safety and monitoring systems.
The main construction sites that will affect the TILO lines in 2021 are the completion of the doubling of the line between Cadenazzo and Tenero, the renovation of the S30 line, the 4 metre corridor project for the Paradiso and S. Martino tunnels and on the Ceneri line, the renovation of the tracks between Mendrisio and Balerna and the renovation of the platform at Maroggia-Melano station. At the end of the article you can view the summary document on the construction sites planned in Ticino in 2021.
The disruptions associated with the construction projects should be kept to a minimum for rail traffic as well as passengers. To this end, TILO and SBB are continually looking for solutions to maintain timetable stability and plan targeted information measures.
Whenever possible, attempts are made to take construction sites into account when planning the timetable. In other cases, specific measures are taken to ensure rail transport operations and minimise the inconvenience to passengers.
TILO and SBB are committed to keeping rail service disruptions to a minimum for customers until the construction work is completed. This includes the strategic use of rolling stock and careful planning of railway operations. In the event of operational disruptions and changes in rail traffic, all necessary measures shall be taken to guarantee the best possible customer service.
