A Vision for Switzerland

Underground with ultra-fast speed through Switzerland

SwissMetro-NG is a modern, sustainable transportation system, which will connect the urban centres of Switzerland without deiminishing the charm and beauty of the picturesque landscapes and historical cities. It supplements the existing railways and highways and eliminates the present congestions. It also fulfils the requirements of the 21st Century (CO2, energy efficiency, sustainability, etc.). SwissMetro-NG eliminates the resistances instead of fighting them with fuel. Ultra-fast (supersonic) speeds become possible, sustainable and economically feasible.

Our railways and motorways are already overcrowded and cannot be upgraded without negatively impacting our landscapes and cities. Aviation is unsuitable for intercity travel in Switzerland and Hyperloop is also not an option (insuficient capacity, impact on landscape).

 

Possible Networks

Connecting the important Swiss cities and regions

The network can be constructed in steps. Travel times are reduced significantly. Connections to smaller cities are also possible. In this way we bring Swiss regions closer together and at the same time we preserve their cultural diversity.

Step 1: The first network connects the most important cities with single tracks (thin lines)

Step 2: Network with dual tracks on the main lines (thick Lines) and single tracks to connect the South.

 

Step 3: This is how the fully developed network could look like.
(include additional regions, connect on to neighbouring countries, increase in capacity).
(single track = thin lines, double track = thick lines)
