Another highlight for ILF at the Gotthard Road Tunnelmore
Just recently, ILF Consulting Engineers was awarded a contract for the design of the second tunnel tube of the Gotthard road tunnel in a consortium with three other engineering firms.
Having a length of 17 km, the Gotthard road tunnel is the fourth longest road tunnel in the world and the longest road tunnel in the Alps. In addition to several cross connections to the existing tunnel and underground ventilation stations, the project also comprises two 5-km-long access tunnels and associated external facilities.
The design will start in November with the preparation of the detailed design. This will be followed by the preparation of tender documents and the challenging construction design through to commissioning. ILF is looking forward to applying its wide-ranging experience from the Gotthard Base Tunnel project and other road tunnels to this project.
