The Munt La Schera tunnel is owned by EKW. On 29 October 1963 the Swiss federal government granted EKW the special use concession for the construction and operation of the tunnel. The tunnel was built solely for the purpose of maintaining and operating the Punt dal Gall dam. Furthermore EKW made the tunnel available to provide transit for third parties, which, with the continuous growth of tourism in Livigno, has now become indispensable. Besides contributing to the transit operating costs, the toll collected by EKW is invested in financing tunnel safety.
