Re: P/400 & C400 Cauge Clearances along the Lötschberg Rout

My original question derived from the fact that I was aware of the clearance project for Dosto passenger carriages, but from looking at the map it seems that not all of the routes cleared for Dosto stock have sufficient clearances for 4.0 meter trailers. Now this doesn't appear to be a problem on routes that lack tunnels, hence the fact that the route from Kruezlingen to St. Margarethen is shown as clear. Is there such a map published by the BAV or perhaps by SBB Infra showing clearances within Switzerland? The portion of the map covering Switzerland as published by Interunit for the UIRR shows non-standard colors for Switzerland and relies on notations.

As a separate question is the tunnel just west of Aarau station cleared for 4.0 meter high containers? It seems odd if it wasn't as that tunnel is the only one separating the Intermodal terminal at Aarau from the cleared lines. Also does anyone know if the Heitersberg Tunnel has enough clearance? This would allow a terminal to be sited in the Zürich area and also possibly to reach the existing terminal at Glattbrug.
