Two new lifts under construction for 2016 opening, rest of the project delayed again

The long-awaited 6-person detachable chairlift at the Oberalppass will be opening in December. It has been under construction for the past two years. Meanwhile, on Nätschen, a 6-person detachable chairlift replacing the Grossboden T-bar will also be completed.

The rest of the project has been further delayed, with none of the other lifts expected until 2017, in part due to a planning application problem, The Andermatt Gallery understands. Construction for the new gondola on Nätschen is expected to begin later this month, although it is not expected to be finished in time for the December opening.
