In the context of the Ceneri Base Tunnel Opening, our Management Board member for ProRail and chairman of the Management Board of RFC Rhine-Alpine (going through Switzerland), mister Guus de Mol, was invited to the RailFreight Live Talk, which is hosted by railfreight.com every Friday.
Guus de Mol stressed the benefits the tunnel offers for railway undertakings and the economy in the future. When the tunnel opens for regular traffic in December, "it makes it possible to run longer trains with heavier loads" de Mol stated. The realisation of the New Rail Link through the Alps "makes it cheaper, easier and faster to cross Switzerland".
