Titlis Reports A Successful Start To The 2024 Construction Season

Titlis Bergbahnen and the contracted partner companies will continue the construction work as part of the TITLIS project after the winter break. Line II, a second connection between Stand station and Titlis, is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2024. Before construction work could resume, the various construction sites had to be cleared of snow.

A significant highlight of the planned work in 2024 is the completion of Line II, which is scheduled for December. The new, single-lane aerial tramway with a separate mountain station will be used to transport materials throughout the entire project period. Once the entire project is completed, it will primarily serve as an evacuation railway. In the coming weeks and months, concrete work will mainly be carried out at the valley and mountain stations.

In the future observation tower on the Titlis, which is scheduled for completion in 2026, the entire existing antenna floor will be moved further up. This work is scheduled to be completed by June 2024. At the same time, construction work on the future snow groomer hall is progressing. A clearly visible change will be the four new steel towers that will surround the existing tower by autumn. They will house the vertical access such as stairs and lifts for the new services in the tower.

The first foundation and shell construction work is planned for the Titlis Rotair mountain station in 2024. The new mountain station is scheduled to be completed and put into operation in 2029.

The TITLIS project, designed by the renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron from Basel, comprises several sub-projects, including Line II, the observation tower and a new mountain station. These comprehensive measures are intended to sustainably enhance the visitor experience on Titlis and further increase the attractiveness of the Engelberg-Titlis destination.

Another important project on the Titlis is the flush drilling, which successfully achieved a breakthrough in March. Pipes are currently being pulled into the 750-meter-long bore channel that runs beneath the glacier. The new utility tunnel will connect the mountain station directly to the fresh water pipe and the sewer system. In addition, the power and fiber optic cables laid in the tunnel will ensure a safe and more efficient power and telecommunications connection.
