ABSTRACT
This article deals with the threat facing the future of rail freight in the Swiss Alps. A law was passed during the 1990s that requires freight hauled by road across the Alps to be switched to raft. As the law will no longer apply after 2010, new legislation is needed. The transport ministry has proposed several options for discussion. Hupac strongly favours Option 1, pointing to the success of current policy that has seen a 15% rise in transalpine rail freight since 2000, with intermodal traffic up by 50%
