The Swiss are fond of climbing mountains, but are just as happy to travel through them. Visitors flock to the tunnel for an open day at the Erstfeld construction site in 2010. (2010, Alptransit Gotthard Ltd)

On 23 August 2013 in Erstfeld, AlpTransit Gotthard, the consortium building the Gotthard axis, welcomes the one millionth visitor to a construction site. The public have been given the opportunity to find out about the tunnel plans and the status of work at the Gotthard (Erstfeld, Sedrun, Pollegio) and the Lötschberg (Mitholz, Raron). These are the starting points for the tours, which prove extremely popular and are invariably booked out.

« Visitor numbers have been continually high. »
