The tunnel
The siding in the tunnel.
Of course after the Kaprun tragedy the security in the tunnel has been verified and improved. Note the fire extinguishers every 10 meters. At regular intervals there are also signposts informing the distance to the bottom and to the top (for example 30m< >300m). A second metallic footbridge has been installed along the track.
