Lombardi has been involved in road infrastructure projects since 1967, when we were first assigned to work on the Gotthard Road Tunnel (longest road tunnel in the Alps). Our dedication to this field has allowed us to establish ourselves as a reputable company with a proven track record of delivering quality results. We remain committed to this mission and continue to explore new and innovative solutions to meet the needs of our clients.
Lombardi is involved in all major transalpine tunnels, starting with the Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT), the longest rail tunnel and deepest traffic tunnel in the world. GBT was developed to improve transportation and connectivity between northern and southern Europe and serves since 2016 as an important link in the Swiss rail system. Lombardi was involved from the earliest feasibility studies and provided project design, construction management and environmental supervision, with a particular highlight on the squeezing rock sections. Lombardi’s experience is currently applied on the construction of the Lyon - Turin and Brenner Base Tunnels.
With its numerous experts and highly skilled staff, Lombardi offers creative solutions in the difficult field of urban tunneling. We are in our field in tunnelling under difficult geological conditions, in water-bearing soft soil and low overburden. Safety and operation equipment are also part of our scope of services.
