National Railway Infrastructure Development Programme – Message 2026
Parts of the federal highway and railway that pass through downtown St.Gallen are to be capped in the framework of an urban renewal project. The capping operation would enable the development of a new, mixed-use city district with direct access to the St.Fiden train station. Working together with other planning firms, we carried out an extensive study to assess the technical, economic, and sociopolitical feasibility of the piggyback project. Our role included leading the study, and examining and coordinating technical issues.
