Keeping the world’s longest railroad tunnel safe

The Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland is 57km long: and I think its greatest piece of safety equipment is nowhere near the tunnel itself.

■ Thanks to Swiss Federal Railways https://www.sbb.ch/ – drone filming near the tracks was specially approved with railway staff.

■ For tours into the Gotthard Tunnel and to the visitors’ window, see Uri Tourism: https://www.uri.swiss/de/erleben/seilbahn-eldorado-uri/eisenbahn/gotthard-tunnel-erlebnis/
