Sáez Cranes have no fewer than 4 tower cranes operating on this huge civil works, carried out by TPF INFRA, modifying rail sections and infrastructure for the new train station in Bulle, (Switzerland). These Sáez cranes are a critical part of the project, which will increase accessibility, mobility and vastly improve travel times in the south of the country.

This important public work is being developed in phases, and Sáez Cranes have supplied a range of their flat-tops:  TLS 60 8T, TLS 65B 10TTLS 70 12T and the TLS 75 16T.

The renovation work began last October 2019, with a budget of 190 Million Swiss Francs, and is being carried out by the construction company Grisoni-Zaugg.

Improvements in capacity and journey speeds on the Bulle-Romont-Fribourg RER line will see TPF INFRA developing a double-crossing track between the Planchy sector and the Bulle station. This latest investment, including new track, aims to both stabilize and develop the regular schedule.

This ambitious job means a significant improvement on the existing rail service, including a considerable enlargement of the platforms in Bulle station. A redesign will incorporate a transfer to Rue Rieter, an addition of two central and two lateral platforms up to 7 lanes, and also a pedestrian subway that will lead to Place de la Gare and its platforms.

In order to offer an all-inclusive updated service, the La Tour-de-Trême, Broc-Village and Broc-Fabrique stations will be carefully adapted in line with the Swiss equality regulations to facilitate ease of travel for the disabled community.

The remodelling of these railway facilities will make it possible to later adapt the network in southern Fribourg, increasing rail traffic and revitalise mobility in this important area.
