Changing gear to joyful driving...

After being in place for 40 years, the motorway’s electromechanical systems no longer meet the guidelines that now apply. They have to be repaired and in some cases replaced by modern operating equipment as well as safety and security installations (OESSI).

"By virtue of our many years of experience of modern operating equipment and safety and security installations (OESSI), we can apply our profound expertise from the pre-project phase on and thus guarantee optimised sequences. The FEDRO benefits not only from a wide range of services, but also from our highly motivated team and their proven ability to implement complex projects.", Patrik Michel, project manager at Pöyry Switzerland Ltd.
