The international "Transport Across the Alps" conference is to be held in Lucerne/CH from 1 to 3 December. Key issues to be addressed at the conference include the impact of road traffic along the main alpine thoroughfares, the influence of statutory and political provisions on transit traffic and the interactions between transport, regional development, tourism, the environment and the economy.
Papers and discussions will examine the situation of transport in the Alps, trends and research findings.
An excursion to the building site of the Gotthard base tunnel in Amsteg, one of the biggest transport projects in the alpine region, is also scheduled for December 3. The conference languages are Italian, German and French (simultaneous interpreting provided).
