Uri Berg lang - Axen
Environmental impact report
The “Uri Berg lang – Axen” (UBLA) work stream entails continuing the Swiss transalpine rail route north of the Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) into the Brunnen region with a design remit to find a space-saving solution.
The tunnel sections for the GBT extension, a new Axen tunnel as well as the Flüelen access and bypass routes are between 22.5 and 24.1 km long (depending on the option).
Two concept design options were developed and examined in the EIA. The spatial planning report investigated the impact on use.
