a Free ride to the Valais: it should remain so – despite the new 'Bottleneck' on the Lötschberg Route in using wood. In the village on the Bernese side, the Federal government wants to evacuate, during the evacuation of the former ammunition depot now even in the population for a decade. After the Explosion in 1947, bombs, grenades, and cartridges are still buried.
"In the Valais, are big Worries," says CVP-Nationalrat Philipp Matthias Bregy from Naters. "Accessibility via the Lötschberg Route is for the tourism and the industry vital." He therefore demands from the Federal government, that now all variants are examined, so that the traffic will be restricted during the clearing-up "in any way".
A two-lane road in using wood, work before and during the renovation throughout, is opened, Bregy already required. But now he goes further. "If there are ways to accelerate the Expansion of the Lötschberg base tunnel, you have to tackle that." Additional capacity is disarmed using wood-the threat of a bottleneck.
The Federal office of transport does not comment yet
last year, the Parliament decided, the Expansion of the Neat tunnel, since this is two-thirds of the route only a single track is passable. By 2035, the second tube, which has already started is to be equipped, for 930 million Swiss francs, with rails and overhead lines. In using wood-the Federal government plans to make the eviction already 2031 start-up.
In addition, Bregy calls on the Federal government to consider a temporary relocation of the Autoverlads in the base tunnel. Today, the car trains through the old lötschberg tunnel between Kandersteg and Goppenstein. Using wood is located on the Access road.
The Federal office for transport can the ideas from the Valais, do not judge yet. On request, it means that you'll have to look at the impact of the clearance in using wood-rail, with the BLS and the defense Department (VBS) and different variants to discuss. The process was only at the beginning.
The Situation in using wood also employs GLP-President Jürg Grossen, who is in the middle of Frutigen at home. "I want to make sure that the people get from using wood to your right," he says. In 20 years, other people were responsible and would not interpret the Situation the same. "Now, therefore, clear rules must be defined." Big thinks of a special law. Currently, he is examining whether it is necessary to ask for such in Parliament.
In the law of the applicable procedures may be regulated in the same way as the compensation of the villagers, buy-back conditions of real estate or the financial framework for the eviction. According to Large, there are many problem cases, for which a higher-level basis of security for all could bring.
The words of support and promises from the VBS will be "very important," says Large. "You should stay still suspicious. The VBS has underestimated a very serious Problem in using wood for decades or even concealed."
