SwissMetro-NG is a politically neutral non-profit association (NG = New Generation)
A Vision for Switzerland
The aim of our association is a modern sustainable ultra-fast transportation system, which will unburden the existing railways and highways and also fulfil the requirements of the 21st Century (CO2, energy efficiency, sustainability, etc.). It is about connecting the urban centres without diminishing the charm and beauty of the picturesque landscapes and the historical cities of Switzerland. SwissMetro-NG eliminates the resistances instead of fighting them by burning more and more fuel. Ultra-fast (supersonic) speeds become possible, sustainable and economically feasible.
Underground with ultra-fast speed through Switzerland
SwissMetro-NG is sustainable, safe, fast, quiet and environmentally friendly. The vehicles drive in an underground vacuum-tunnel. Very high speeds and an extremely high energy-efficiency are attained by eliminating the resistances. The network can be extended step by step.
Variant 2: Network with dual tracks on the main lines (thick Lines) and single tracks to connect the South.
Variant 3: This is how the fully extended network could look like.
(include additional regions, connect on to neighbouring countries, increase in capacity).
(single track = thin lines, double track = thick lines)
