Setback for Gateway Basel Nord

Setback for Gateway Basel Nord

The trimodal Gateway Basel Nord (GBN) project, being taken forward by an ad hoc joint venture SBB, Hupac and Rhenus will have to wait some time longer for the public subsidies of CHF83M (€77M) allocated by the Swiss federal Office of Transport in July 2018, after the federal Swiss Administrative Court accepted the appeal against the award by rival operator Swissterminal AG.

 

The funding was agreed in July 2018, after the Office of Transport accepted that the project is of "national importance," and would have gone on the first phase of the project, to create a new intermodal rail terminal, costed at CHF130M.

 

The court’s decision has caused some surprise, since in June this year the Swiss Competition Authority cleared the joint venture. However, the court has accepted Swissterminal’s argument that GBN could force it out of the market and has referred the case back to the Office of Transport for further review.

 

Under phase 2, the city of Basel would invest CHF115M towards the construction of a new port basin, No. 3, in order to create a new container barge terminal.
