Controversial mountain deck given go-ahead

The authorities have given the green light for the construction of an observation deck in a mountain face in the Swiss Alps.

The Bern cantonal government on Thursday said it had approved amended plans for a balcony near the top of the Stockhorn mountain in the Bernese Oberland.

The initial project launched two years ago for a glass observation platform, nicknamed the “nose ring”, ran into opposition from environmental groups.

The revised project by the local cable car company foresees a balcony of three metres squared to be built next year. and agencies
