1 Success with three networks: SBB Infrastructure. InnoTrans 2012.

2 2 SBB is playing a central role in the success for Swiss economy. The efficient rail network and reliable transport services facilitate high sophisticated mobility and guarantee to be international competitive. Both, Swiss economy and tourist industry, are participating from SBB.

3 SBB Infrastructure. Preface. SBB uses its rail network more intensive than virtually any other railway in the world. This presents some major challenges, not least to Infrastructure. In order to satisfy increasing demand of mobility, the investment in operation, maintenance and expansion of the rail network is going to be CHF 40 billion until With the opening of major construction projects such as the Zurich cross-city link, the Cornavin Eaux-Vives Annemasse rail link (CEVA), the Gotthard base tunnel and combined with the expansion of regional transport services, a quantum leap in expansion of public transport will approach SBB until The Swiss government is no longer able to meet the growing demand for financing on its own. In addition to the train path pricing system, SBB Infrastructure s internal efficiency programmes (cost savings and productivity enhancements) contribute to finance the maintenance and upkeep of the infrastructure. SBB Infrastructure mission is to ensure rail services run safely and punctually. Over 9,000 employees do their job in the cause of customers and contribute to the fully functional rail, energy and telecommunications networks. Infrastructure facilitates success to its partners in passenger and freight traffic by professional planning, developing and operating SBB s railway infrastructure. One of the key success factors of the world s densest rail network is safety. 3

5 SBB Infrastructure s 9,000 employees ensure every day smooth operation of the rail, power and telecommunications networks. Rail network. Small country, dense timetable: train path kilometres on the SBB network increase constantly, the demand for train paths rose by 20 percent since This means: In order to maintain rail network assets we have to invest large ammount of money. On one hand our funding comes from train path revenues on the other hand operating contribution provided by the Swiss government increased by CHF 37.6 million in the past two years. With these additional funds performance for trackbed renovation, grinding and track tamping will be amplified. SBB can thereby further improve the quality of the SBB network. Telecommunications network. SBB Infrastructure is responsible for the secure and reliable operation of SBB telecommunications network with its 5,300 km of glass-fibre line cable, 5,000 km of copper cable, 5,000 analogue radio systems for construction, shunting and local communication, 23,500 landline phones and 12,000 mobile phone contracts. SBB is also renting out network capacity and services to third parties. Power network. SBB Infrastructure produces, purchases and distributes electric power to run rail services as it needs. Most of traction power is obtained from carbon-dioxide-free renewable sources, with hydroelectric power stations accounting for 75 % of power requirements. The energy network currently supplies all SBB overhead lines and those of 13 private railway companies. To achieve this, SBB Infrastructure uses six wholly owned hydroelectric power stations, six frequency converters connected to the national grid (these convert electricity from 50 Hz to 16.7 Hz for traction power), 66 substations and over 3,000 kilometres of own high voltage power lines. 5

13 Safety, efficiency and punctuality. Three SBB Infrastructure core tasks implementing successfull and continuous improving performance using modern technology and motivated employees. 1. Technology, safety. SBB intends to replace its existing train control system with standardized European ETCS technology by the end of For this SBB is investing CHF 300 million. Besides simplifying network access and cross-border traffic with the rest of Europe SBB is establishing the base for implementing ETCS Level 2. This will improve safety, capacity and reliability in future railway traffic. Unfortunately, political and financial discussions in some countries have delayed project implementation. However, these delays are having marginal effect on ETCS Level 2 implementation plans in Switzerland. ETCS Level 2 is already operating successfully on the high-speed Mattstetten Rothrist line and in the Lötschberg base tunnel. The system allows a two-minute headways with a train speed of 200 km/h. 2. Rail operations. Switzerland is having the world s most heavily used rail network. SBB carries 977,000 people and 195,000 tonnes of freight every day. 9,000 trains travel on the SBB network daily. The company s operating staff ensure passengers and freight travel in complete safety by monitoring, scheduling and controlling train movements. They inform customers about services, train formations, group reservations and connections, if necessary SBB makes announcements through loudspeakers. For these activities state-of-the-art tools and systems are available. 3. Punctuality, timetable. Customer punctuality is one of nine corporate goals and SBB is constantly working to improve its punctuality figures. Customer punctuality has improved steadily over the past few years. SBB Infrastructure is responsible for timetabling, for scheduling construction projects and thus for refurbishing as well as maintaining the entire network. Infrastructure s Timetable and Network Design unit plans and prioritises infrastructure upgrades and expansions, ensures income from train path prices and as such plays a key role in ensuring punctuality. 13

18 Expansion projects. Major construction site beneath the city of Zurich The 9.6-kilometre cross-city link will form a key part of the national eastwest rail transport corridor. This is one of the most complex construction sites in Switzerland. Besides the construction work is carried out at Switzerland s biggest rail hub right in the centre of Zurich the operations are not allowed to be interfered. By increasing capacity at Zurich main station, the new cross-city link will allow new offerings for regional S-Bahn and long-distance services, as example shorter travel times and more flexible connections. The cross-city link initial operation will be in two steps. Step 1 will take place in June 2014, step 2 (long-distance services) at the end of

19 CEVA keeps Switzerland and France connected The Cornavin Eaux-Vives Annemasse (CEVA) rail link will connect the Swiss city of Geneva with the French town of Annemasse. It is 16 kilometres long (14 of which are in Switzerland) and serves five stations. Because most of the route is underground, two tunnels and several cut-and-cover tunnels are being built. The groundbreaking ceremony finally took place at the end of 2011, almost a century after the contract between the Canton of Geneva and the government was signed. By implementing this once-in-a-century construction project, SBB Infrastructure is helping to develop mobility in one of Europe s most dynamic regions. The opening of CEVA in 2017 will facilitate to introduce regional S-Bahn services between France, Swiss Vaud and Geneva and better high-speed links between Switzerland and France. SBB is also contributing to the economic development of the region by building flats along the CEVA route. 19

20 20 Ferrovia Mendrisio Varese key to regional connections The new Ferrovia Mendrisio Varese (FMV) rail link will bring Ticino Lombardy (TILO) regional services to the canton of Ticino and create a link to the Italian border region of Varese. In future, S-Bahn services will run at 30- or 60-minute intervals. There are also plans to run RegioExpress trains from Lugano to Malpensa Airport. Around 40 S-Bahn trains and some RegioExpress trains will operate on the line. We expect the services to attract around 8,400 passengers a day, with commuters rate of 53 percent. The project is part of a phased expansion of rail infrastructure in Ticino, which will culminate in the opening of the Ceneri base tunnel in 2019.

21 Gotthard base tunnel: strengthening the north-south axis The Gotthard base tunnel will open at the end of It will increase the appeal of rail connections and SBB services between the north and south and progressively shorten journey times. When it opens, the world s longest railway tunnel will facilitate rail freight transport more efficient and contribute to the modal shift of heavy traffic from road to rail. Looking ahead to the opening of the tunnel, we will be focusing over the next few years on developing train service and timetable concepts, implementing infrastructure projects along the national feeder routes to the north and south and developing our operational, maintenance and intervention organisation. 21

22 22 Geneva 2030: The mobile future of the Lake Geneva region The Lake Geneva region is one of the most dynamic in Europe. In the past ten years, the region s population has grown by 120,000 and 52,000 new jobs have been created. It is estimated there will be twice as many people travelling by train between Lausanne and Geneva in 2030 as there are today. To satisfy this growing demand, SBB intends to introduce quarter-hourly services on its regional network and longer trains with more seats. For this offer improvements SBB will carry out a number of modifications to the structures at the Lausanne and Geneva rail hubs, such as installing extra tracks and extending the existing platforms.

23 Expansion of Zurich regional services. Every day, more than 500,000 people take SBB Regional Services S-Bahn trains or buses to travel to work, school or leisure activities safely and on time. The growth in demand is making further upgrade work necessary. The Zurich S-Bahn stations and track systems will be continuously upgraded until This work will closely coordinated with major national projects such as the cross-city link, Switzerland s connection to the high-speed rail network and the Future Development of Rail Infrastructure programme. Once all building work is completed, Phase 4 of the Zurich S-Bahn network upgrade will bring halfhourly services to the entire S-Bahn network and quarter-hourly services in the inner suburbs of Zurich at rush hours. 23
