The last rail has been laid in the new Loetschberg BASE tunnel which is part of the Berne - Brig rail route in Switzerland. This in turn forms part of a wider network linking northern Italy to north western Europe. This tunnel is the first of a group of longer, deeper, higher speed tunnels under the Alps to be completed. This one tunnel will cut the Berne - Brig journey time from 90 minutes to 60.

I'm sure that the Swiss have ample funds of other peoples money to pay for the upgrade out of petty cash (TIC).
