Breakthrough in the Lötschberg railway tunnel

28 April saw the breakthrough right in the middle of the almost 3-kilometer-long Lötschberg rail tunnel under the Swiss Alps.
The holing-through ceremony was attended by the Swiss Minister of the Environment Moritz Leuenberger. Lateral deviation between the northern and the southern sections of the tunnel was thirteen centimetres, while vertical deviation was just a few millimetres. The Lötschberg base tunnel, which is part of Switzerland's New Alpine Rail Axis (NEAT), is due to be commissioned in 2007.
