Trains start running through Gotthard Tunnel Sunday
Trains will start running through the Gotthard Base tunnel this Sunday.
This Sunday also sees a major change in train timetables across the country to take into account of the new services.
The Federal Transport Ministry gave the go ahead to launch services earlier this week. Although the planned launch date was set a while ago.
There will some initial restrictions. Some works on rails near the tunnel means there’s a speed limit of 80kph and trains running through the tunnel will be limited to 200kph and not the hoped for 250.
