Come explore the art and science of managing a modern megaproject with Peter Jedelhauser, Director of the “Léman 2030” programme at Swiss Federal Railways. Peter will uncover the Swiss approach to large-scale railway projects and how a set of simple principles drive highly complex networks of stakeholders. These mega railway projects include the 57.4 km long Gotthard base tunnel, and then the 4 billion CHF Léman 2030 project, which will double the public transport capacity between Lausanne and Geneva in highly populated urban environment by developing existing railway infrastructure. Join Tim Jaques and Peter Jedelhauser in a discussion about creating the conditions for success in mega projects.
