Description

In Europe, there are currently 9 car transportation services (you can drive with your car onto a train and remain in the car to pass a tunnel/bridge). One in D, one in A and 7 in CH. For example, there is one between Selfranga and Sagliains, throug the Vereina tunnel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vereina_Tunnel, see German for more information). In winter time, this is the standard way for cars/trucks as a replacement for the Flüela Pass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fl%C3%BCela_Pass, more info in the German version ;)) which is closed for avalanches. It would be great if routing would be possible through this tunnel. Most of the swiss people know that they should use the Vereina in winter time, but for tourists, this would be helpful. I think for OSM, we would have to introduce a new tag, because as far as i see, there is no appropriate tag.

Think of the chunnel or canal tunnel between France and the UK?

  • Milestone set to want patch / contribution

Good point. But the first part of implementation doesn't depend on navit : we need some kind of new tag in OSM. Please post updates about the tag, so we can implement it in navit afterward.
