Construction of a heavy traffic control centre for 300 vehicles with a service area including a new motorway access
A heavy traffic control centre for the southern access to the Gotthard road tunnel is being built on the site of a disused steelworks near Giornico. A rest area for long-distance truck drivers will also be built and Giornico will be connected to the national road network with a new motorway access.
The new centre is necessary to ensure the safety standards of long-distance drivers in international transit traffic and to monitor compliance with driving and loading regulations. There will also be a parking area for heavy vehicles in case of roadblocks and night-time driving bans.
The project also includes a comprehensive rehabilitation of the land contaminated by decades of previous industrial use.
