Gateway Basel Nord making progress
The Swiss federal office of transport (FOT) has confirmed funds of CHF 83 million for the planned trimodal terminal Gateway Basel Nord. The funds had already been approved in 2018. However, because of a ruling by the Federal administrative court, the FOT had to repeat the procedure.
For Gateway Basel Nord, the renewed confirmation is an important prerequisite for the implementation of the project, the company, which includes Contargo, Hupac and SBB Cargo, said.
Progress is also being made on measures to protect the natural habitat during and after terminal construction: in spring, dead shrubs were replaced along an existing migration corridor for smooth snakes. Now this area is also being fenced off. (ben)
