The 2035 Rail Expansion Step (ES 35) aims to resolve foreseeable congestion on the rail network. Parliament has approved an overall package of CHF 12.89 billion.
The Swiss rail network is to be gradually expanded on a rolling basis. In 2019, Parliament approved CHF 12.89 billion for the current package – the 2035 Rail Expansion Step (ES 35). This will enable expansion of long-distance and regional rail networks and services, in line with the rapidly growing demand. The budget also allows for expansion of private rail networks and freight traffic.
