Italy Obtains Financing for Naples - Milan - Turin HSR

Italy's ISPA In EUR2.0B Loan To Fund High-Speed Railway
6 May 2005

ROME (Dow Jones)--Italian state agency Infrastrutture SpA, which finances the country's high-speed train project, said Friday it had mandated a group of banks to arrange a EUR2.0 billion loan.

The loan will have a two-year maturity with an option to extend it an extra year, Infrastrutture, or ISPA, said in a statement. It's part of a EUR25 billion high-speed railway debt plan which includes loans and bonds.

The EUR2.0 billion loan will be used to fund the high-speed railway section connecting Naples in the south of Italy to Milan and Turin in the north.

ISPA was created by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's government in 2002 to finance big infrastructure projects. With the latest loan announced Friday, some EUR10 billion has been raised by Infrastrutture to finance Italy's high speed railway.

Joint bookrunners for the loan are Societe Generale (13080.FR) and Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS.LN), ISPA said.

Looking great though the Florence station looks over the top. The diamond look is too obvious.

I thought that the ETRs are now an Alstom product?

Depends which ETR. The ETR 500 (which is the principle high speed train in Italy) is built by the TREVI Consortium (www. consorziotrevi.it) which is composed of AnsaldoBreda S.p.A., Firema Trasporti S.p.A., Alstom Ferroviaria S.p.A. (ex-FIAT Ferroviaria) and Bombardier Transportation S.p.A.

The Pendolino series (ETR 460, 470 & 480) is now built by Alstom Ferroviaria, inheriting it from FIAT Ferroviaria.

Genius, don't tell me that the HST will stop in Reggio Emilia as well! Will it have more than the actual Eurostar stops?

Nice -- however, what happens to the central station in Rome??? You have to travel to the Tiburtina station for HSR now, you can't get it at Termine?

Did they change the Eurostar Italia trains in Rome? Last time I was there (3 years ago) it stopped at Roma Termini.



The new stations look amazing espeically the first one!

The trains wich have as terminus Roma will stop first at Tiburtina and then at Termini, while the trains which haven't as terminus Rome (e.g. Milano-Napoli trains) just will stop at Tiburtina

Same for Naples: Afragola and Napoli Centrale with Naples as final destination, just Afragola the ones passing by
Same for Turin: Porta Susa and Porta Nuova terminus, just Porta Susa passing by
Same for Milan: Milano Centrale as terminus, but in this case Milan got three 'gate' HS stations from three different directions (Rho-Fiera for Turin direction, Pioltello for Venice direction and Rogoredo for Bologna direction)
Unfortunately these three stations won't have anything innovative or interesting in their architecture, unlike the other ones shown in this thread; they're building 'em with 'ordinarian' materials and shapes (even a bit crap)
And I'm still wondering why

ITALY | High Speed Rail

Italian TAV

TAV (treno ad alta velocitŗ) is a special purpose owned by RFI for planning and construction of high-speed rail lines along italy's most important and saturated transport routes. The porpose of TAV construction is to aid travel along Italy's most saturated and used rail lines and to add tracks to these lines, namely the Milano-Napoli (Milan-Naples) and Torino-Milano-Venezia corridors. One of the focuses of the project is to turn the rail network of Italy into a modern and high -teach system of passneger. A secondary purpose is to indroduce high-speed rail to the country and its hight-priority corridors. An important consideration of the lines is to improve travel times, train frequency, and safety. When demand on regular linesis lessened with the opening of dedicated high-speed lines, those regular lines will be used primarily for low-speed regional and city rail service. With these ideas realised, the italian train network can be integratedwith other european rail networks.
In Italy, the dominant method of transport is the use of automobiles and the motorway network. There is a very strong divide of how people and goods are transported, the majority being carried using cars and trucks. In Italy There are metro system in Rome, Milan, Naples, Torino, Genova and Catania and tram systems in city like Milano, Naples, Roma, Torino, Florence, Palerm, Bergamo and Sassari. In other 20 city there are great trolley bus systems. A major reason to develop a highly developed and systematic rail network in the country is to encourage a sense of competitiveness between different modes of transport and to improve an under-utilised and aging rail infrastructure.
