Schweikrüti (pylon 46) – Kilchberg section
After the Federal Supreme Court had sent the planning approval dossier for the Schweikrüti–Kilchberg section back to the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), the latter mandated the construction of an overhead line. Appeals against this ruling have been filed with the Federal Administrative Court. After exhausting the judicial instances, a legally binding building permit has now been issued. This overhead line is to include Swissgrid’s 380-/220-kV line and the SBB’s 132-kV railway power line. As a compensatory measure, Axpo’s 110-kV line between Obfelden and Thalwil will be dismantled.
Kilchberg – Frohalp section
The SFOE has mandated that the Kilchberg – Frohalp cabled section be exempted from the sectoral plan process. The project is currently being further developed as part of the construction project. The planning approval dossier for submission to the Federal Inspectorate for Heavy Current Installations (ESTI) is in preparation.
Frohalp – Waldegg section
The Federal Council has defined the planning corridor for implementing an underground line in the sectoral plan process. The construction project is in preparation.
Teilabschnitt Waldegg – Obfelden
The preliminary project for the Waldegg–Obfelden section is in preparation.
