The area running between Zurich, Basel and Bern is highlighted as a major problem and all the autoroutes could be expanded to six lanes.

Another area is the A1 between Geneva and Lausanne – that could also get a new lane in each direction.

New bypasses could also be built, especially around Geneva, Lausanne and Basel and new autoroutes between Bern and Lucerne which could skip Zurich altogether.
