The Gotthard Base Tunnel, the world’s longest and deepest train tunnel through the Swiss Alps, makes exclusive use of South African antenna technology from Poynting Antennas to ensure a seamless digital communication service underground over a route length of more than 57km.

The R130 billion-project was completed recently and consists of two single-track tunnels connecting Switzerland with Italy, as part of the so-called New Railway Link through the Alps

“We are very proud of the fact that a South African company was chosen as the preferred antenna supplier for this colossal project,” says the CEO of Poynting South Africa, Michael Howard.
