Europe commits more money to Italian national network

Listen to this article

The European Union is to co-finance two rail improvement projects in Italy as part of the continued investment in the Scandinavian-Mediterranean priority corridor.

The EU will contribute €15 million to two projects, including upgrade works on the Orte-Falconara line and a scheme to double a section of track from Lunghezza to Guidonia.

Set for completion by the end of 2015, the programme of works will also include station improvements and is designed to remove bottlenecks along the routes.

In a separate announcement, an Alstom-led consortium has been awarded a €33 million project to supply and install a new signalling system for the Monserrato-Senorbì and Macomer-Nuoro lines in Sardinia.

The contract covers 90 kilometres of track, 20 stations and a fleet of 50 trains across the two lines.

    • Thanks for the compliment, Noam! Maybe the UK should stop treating the rest of Europe like a hungry monster — keen to steal health care, jobs and benefits — if it wants the rest of Europe to invest in UK infrastructure.
