The reparation works of the Gotthard line will take about a month, as
The line interruption involves around 50 Hupac trains per day.
Hupac plans to divert a possibly high number of trains on alternative routes.
These are the Lötschberg/Simplon, Brenner und Modane corridors.
At present we are recovering the consigments that are still waiting on
the terminals because of the interruption. The first diversions have already
taken place. All international relations are served, but the overall medium
capacity is only around 30% of normal volumes.
For the coming weeks a plan is being elaborated together with the railways.
The short term objective is to guarantee at least half of the normal offer on
all international relations.
The following, not involved traffic connections are fully operative:
Genk <=> Busto
Rotterdam <=> Novara
Duisburg/Köln HGK <=> Novara
Antwerp/Rotterdam/Taulov <=> Verona
The Hupac staff is at disposal of customers 24 h for detailed information
on the single products.
