Swiss company Cargo Sous Terrain (CST) has developed a system that they hope will reduce freight transport on our roads in the future.
CST’s vision is to build an underground transportation network where electric pods continuously transport goods in a kind of electric pod. The idea is that the capsules will roll in 24 km/h tunnels built underground around the clock. You can check out how everything works a little closer in the video below.
CST states that it will build the first part of the system between Härkingen-Niederbipp and Zurich by 2030. Then it will be a tunnel system about 70 km long that must be built. By 2050, the CST hopes to have a network of more than 500 km, which will connect the two cities of Geneva, Saint Petersburg. Gallen, Basel, Lausanne, Lucerne, and Thun.
