PÖYRY PLC   Press Release 6 October 2015 12.00 pm (EEST)

Pöyry awarded engineering, project management and site supervision services assignment for renovation work in the Gamsen Tunnel, Switzerland

The Federal Roads Office (FEDRO) has awarded Pöyry with the engineering, project management and site supervision services assignment for the complete renewal of all operational and safety equipment in the Gamsen Tunnel close to Visp, in the canton of Valais, Switzerland. Pöyry's scope of services includes the conceptual design, detailed engineering, management of permitting procedures, tender support, site supervision and commissioning services for the completion of all necessary operational and safety equipment and signalling renewal works of the client. Work will begin in October 2015 and is scheduled for completion in 2018.

The Gamsen Tunnel is 1074 metres long and forms part of the A 9 motorway, which runs from Ballaigues on the French border through Lausanne, Vevey, Sion and Brig-Glis to Gondo on the Italian border. As part of the complete renovation project, the Gamsen Tunnel will be brought up to the same technical standard as the adjacent Eyholz Tunnel, which is currently under construction. This means systems such as signals, communication and control technology will be aligned in both tunnels, ensuring a standardised operations and maintenance concept.

"We are delighted to be involved in the complete renovation of the Gamsen Tunnel. With our broad expertise and highly qualified experts, we are confident that we will be able to contribute to the successful, on-schedule conclusion of this important project", says Nicola Norghauer, Pöyry's Head of Transport in Switzerland.
