Creating Trust in Mega Projects – experiences from two railway mega projects in Switzerland.

According to SBB predictions, between 2010 and 2030, the program will double transport capacity from 50,000 to 100,000 passengers per day.

This 4 billion CHF megaproject is designed to substantially improve the offer, timetables and capacity of rail transport (passenger and freight) along the Lausanne – Geneva corridor. It includes, among others, the implementation of new rail traffic regimes in the Lausanne area, the complete modernisation / extension of the Lausanne and Renens railway stations as well as the construction of a new underground station in Geneva.
