Between Saanenmöser and Zweisimmen two construction sites will cause single-lined traffic. The two sections should be finished by December of this year. If winter will arrive as early as last year, however, the work may drag into 2019.
Hans Schär, member of the liberal party FDP, was re-elected for a four-year term. He is the only representative of the Saanenland in the Grand Council. Politicians lament the low voter turnout of only 36.8%.
