September/October 2018 Excavation and level correction of the road

At the beginning of September, excavation work was carried out according to plan. Part of the material was deposited in the field above the excavation site. This is to be used later for backfilling the carriage shed and for the renaturation of the site. The remaining material was taken away to the dump in Zumdorf.

In the course of the work, cables belonging to the military which were buried on the site of the future shed, were also removed. That corner of the excavation on the Realp side, close to the road to the Furka pass, was secured with lean concrete and the remaining slopes were covered with plastic sheeting to prevent erosion.

The area for future parking spaces alongside the shed was excavated and backfilled with frost-proof material.

Parallel to the excavation works, a point over which the carriages will be moved from the railway station to the shed was installed.

Following excavation, the level of the Schweigstrasse was raised where the track to the carriage shed will cross. The road will be asphalted in spring 2019 after the railway tracks have been installed. The level of the gulf club’s parking lots will be adapted appropriately.

In the course of the works on the roadway, pipework and manholes for the traffic light installations were installed, as were power and water supplies for the construction site. The required drains and manholes were also installed.

April 2019: Gleisübergang Schweigstrasse und Werkleitungen

Sobald es die Schneelage erlaubte, wurden die Arbeiten für die Remise wieder aufgenommen. Schwerpunkt war die Erstellung des Gleisanschlusses zum DFB-Bahnhof und die Gleisquerung der Schweigstrasse. Im Bereich der Schweigstrasse wurden die Gleise bis zum Einbau des Strassenbelages vorübergehend mit Schotter und Planiematerial eingedeckt.

Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt war die Verlegung von Werkleitungen und die Entwässerung des Gleisfeldes vor der Remise.
