The mountain railways company, Bergbahnen Destination Gstaad AG (BDG) has confirmed the status of two new rail projects. The Saanerslochbahn will soon progress to the next stage, while the Gstaad-Eggli line has been stalled while they resolve public objections.
Unfortunately, the next steps of the Saanerslochbahn will take longer than expected. The old gondolas will have to take winter sport enthusiasts up the mountain one more winter. Preliminary works have been planned to take place in the summer and autumn 2017.
