I have a question. Considering that the entire Gotthard line is closed, can it be assumed that the SBB has hundreds of workers fixing every little track defect along the route because an opportunity like this does not come along very often?

I have no detailed information but SBB informed that they changed their program for engineering work in order to profit from the reduced traffic on the Gotthard axis.
