Gotthard-base tunnel

The Gotthard base tunnel was opened officially on 1 June 2016 with a great ceremony. Foreign and domestic guests from politics and business celebrated this historic event together. A week later a large public festival took place at the tunnel portals. In order to direct the numerous guests quickly to available parking spaces, professionals for such tasks, the Securitas traffic service specialists, were on duty.


High-ranking figures from politics and business attended the opening ceremony of the Gotthard base tunnel. Thousands of security specialists were deployed: police, army, transport police SBB, Securitrans and security services were present everywhere. On 4 and 5 June 2016 the whole population was invited to an unforgettable festival at the tunnel portals and at several railway stations throughout Switzerland. With possibly 100,000 visitors increased traffic volume was expected. So that visitors quickly found parking spaces and the required fee could be collected immediately, Securitas had been commissioned to draw up a parking concept and implement it during the festival. The Securitas traffic service specialists directed the vehicles to available parking spaces, collected parking fees and were always prepared to provide their services at alternative parking areas when the first lots were full.
