The Federal Office of Transport (FOT) has given the first green light for the new concept and work schedule for Lausanne station. The final technical file for the core of the project will be submitted in autumn 2025. The 2037 horizon is still relevant.

The basic file has been transformed to better take into account future needs, including a widening of the platforms, summarized Charles-André Philipona, director of the Léman 2030 program at the CFF, to the media. ‘It is solid and got a green light from the OFT at the start of the year. We will produce the final technical file on time which will be submitted in autumn 2025,’ he announced.

We are talking here about the entire basement of the Lausanne station and the static problems that had been identified. The file also had to be reviewed more widely in order to take into account the evolution of the number of travelers.

Mr. Philipona took the opportunity to take stock of the work. 25% of the total project has already been invested for nearly 450 million francs out of a total of 1.7 billion.
