C-Matrix is now responsible for external communications for the A1 North Bypass Zurich (www.nordumfahrung.ch). The ASTRA key project, with a construction volume of approximately CHF 1.55 billion, is to be inaugurated in 2025. C-Matrix won the mandate in a public tendering process organized by the Winterthur branch of the Swiss Federal Roads Office (FEDRO). In addition to communications with residents, authorities and the media, the contract also includes maintaining the A1 Information pavilion in Regensdorf.
Zurich’s northern bypass is one of the busiest road sections in Switzerland and has reached its capacity limit. With the extension of the roadway to six lanes and the construction of a third tube for the Gubrist tunnel, FEDRO is eliminating this bottleneck.
