New BLS workshops
Modern workshops for the S-Bahn of the future
380 employees in four workshops work day and night to ensure that BLS passengers can commute and travel in clean, well-maintained trains. Maintenance is the backbone of the railway’s reliable operation. If things are to remain that way, BLS needs to prepare its workshop for the continually expanding range of services and longer trains.
As part of the three-site strategy for maintaining BLS’s S-Bahn trains, the Spiez workshop will be completely renovated, modernised and expanded over the next few years. The primary objective is to ensure light-weight maintenance on BLS’s easterly route network for coming generations and to absorb the Aebimatt site’s work near Bern station as of its closure in 2020.
