Swiss Tunnel Congress 2017: maintenance and renewal of traffic tunnels

Published on 13.06.2017

This year's Swiss Tunnel Congress (STC) was held at the Lucerne Congress Centre from May 30 to June 1, 2017. BG was one of the event's main sponsors and, as in previous years, it had a stand at the exhibition.

Over the first two days, the public came in numbers and was able to attend presentations on iconic national and international tunnels, such as the tunnels of Bözberg, Gubris, Albula, the Albvorland tunnel (as part of the Stuttgart-Ulm railway project in Germany) or the Oslo-Ski line in Norway (Follo Line). On the last day of the congress, site visits were organised (to the Riedberg, Belchen, Eppenberg, Albula tunnels and the underground Schlossberg car park in Thun).

As an internationally recognised forum, the Swiss Tunnel Congress is an unmissable event for designers, planners, engineers, suppliers, contractors and industrialists who work in the tunnel-building sector.

By choosing “Maintenance and renewal of traffic tunnels” as the topic for this year’s colloquium, the STC highlighted the importance of maintaining existing structures. Our traffic tunnels are subject to heavy loads so they age more quickly. It is a major challenge to carry out the necessary replacement of arches, drains and operating equipment, etc. without interrupting the traffic that uses the tunnel.

We are delighted to have been part of this event and to have had an opportunity to present our current projects. We also made the most of the occasion to strengthen our existing partnerships and to establish new contacts.
