BURRI as a total contractor
Limmattalbahn stage 1
A tramway for the Limmat Valley. The first stage is underway and the final expansion is expected to be completed by December 2022.
BURRI public elements won the international WTO tender for the Limmattalbahn stopping point infrastructure in 2016, and is managing the entire project as a full-service general contractor. Implementation is taking place in cooperation with the architectural office 10:8, under the lead of Jürg Senn. The project is divided into two stages.
The first stage was ceremoniously opened by Doris Leuthard with a groundbreaking in late summer 2017. This stretches from Zurich-Altstetten to Schlieren, which is where BURRI presented the first prototype to the media, users and operators who were gathered at Geissweid station in mid-April. 13 more concourses will be assembled by the summer of 2019 and commissioned the following December.
The 12 by 2.5 metre concourse comprises five distinctive components: a long wooden bench, the slender supports with a steel roof, the glass wind and bird protection, the technology and information cabinet, as well as railings.
This coming summer, BURRI will begin with the planning for the second stage, which will encompass a further 13 standard stops. The completion of construction is expected to be finalised by December 2022.
BURRI is proud to be equipping not only the stopping points but also the entire route with LOOP luminaires and bicycle parking systems.
