Transalpine freight traffich as grown in the first half of 2011with rail freight traffic having more increased than truck traffic. In the meantime, the transport of goods over the Alps has reached the levels they had before the financial crisis again.
With these numbers the modal shift target of not more than 650,000 trucktrips per year is far from being met. After the first half of the year, already a number of 647,000 truck journey was reached. Not even the intermediate target limit of 1 billion trucks in 2011, which was fixed in a Swiss law on modal shift, will be achieved this year.
