Major project in western Switzerland

Reading time: 3 minutes

The RSRG successfully contributes extensive expertise to the Alpiq.

Between 2017 and 2019, the RSRG was involved in constructing the new CEVA (Cornavin, Eaux-Vives, Anne-Masse) cross-border railway line. 


CEVA consists of a double-track tunnel (9 km) under Geneva city centre, four stations and two bridges. The joint venture works included constructing various mass-spring systems as well as slab track in tunnels and on bridges. The total contract of around CHF 80 million also included instal-ling overhead contact wires, cables and handrails.

As the overall coordinator, the RSRG was responsible for the railway equipment from the implementation planning to the construction and commissioning, and coordinated deadlines, costs, quality, environmental concerns and occupational safety to the complete satisfaction of the customer.

In the CEVA lighthouse project, the RSRG and especially the Swiss market were able to optimally deploy their joint competences, thereby further strengthening their position in western Switzerland.
