Bizarre Opening Ceremony For Gotthard Base World’s Longest Rail Tunnel In Switzerland


The new £8.5bn Gotthard Base Tunnel was launched today with spectacular opening ceremony featuring 600 people. Orchestrated by German director Volker Hesse, performance included several bizarre outfits and re-enactments.
The tunnel through the Swiss Alps was first conceived in sketch-form in 1947 but construction began 17 years ago. Journey time between Zurich and Milan will be cut by an hour thanks to trains hurtling along at up to 155mph.
