Bahn 2000, New Line Mattstetten - Rothrist

As part of the official rail programme Bahn 2000 for the extension of rail services the Rothrist station was due to reconstruction.
Two branch connections and a 5 track station at Rothrist is required.
High speed and dense traffic, project execution under full operation, limited space and strong environmental conditions made the project to a very complex and demanding task.

Particular requirements have been to keep up normal operation besides intensive works on site, ensure operational safety, permancy of industrial use (cargo services) and the demanding time schedule (realisation of construction works in 12 phases with many temporary / provisional works).
