Unfortunately, the city is not busy...

The contractor went bankrupt, so works in the extension of line 1 are now suspended.

ALL SET FOR THE WORKS TO BE CARRIED OUT IN THE TURIN UNDERGROUND , LINE 1
Email
metro torinoPrato, 09.07.2014: In Turin some say it seems a "miracle", in Prato instead the works start being organized. It has just been signed the contract between Infra.To and C.C.C. (Building Cooperative Societies Consortium) that will allow the restarting of works for the construction of the route «Lingotto - Bengasi» belonging to the line 1 of the underground . CCC will entrust the execution of works to Cellini GTC Soc. Coop – CMC (Cooperative Society of Bricklayers & Cementers) and CDC (Building Cooperative Society).
The works have been stopped since August 2013, the merchants from the underground terminal square were on the brink of despair : but now they can breathe a sigh of relief.
The CCC consortium is the third ranked company in the tender, which has superseded the previous contract entered into with the Temporary Business Association «Seli/Coopsette», under the same conditions. The second ranked company, Ghella, preferred to decline the availability to carry out the works.
The works will be managed by a Consortium Company formed by three cooperative societies which will perform all the works. From next week onwards, the first preparation activities of the building site will begin, and the adaptation of everything that, as the counters, was from the responsibility of the old company. According to an article published on the "La Stampa" newspaper website, «the works will last about 3 years, with the underground commissioning in 2017. However it will be possible to reopen the Nizza Street to the traffic at the end of the tunnel construction during 2016».
In 2017, therefore, Turin should have the new route «Lingotto - Bengasi» with the 2 stops of «Italia 61 –Piemonte Region» and «Bengasi», 3 ventilation wells and a 1,9 km long tunnel dug entirely with Tbm. Cost: 59,9 million euros.

Turin metro extension approved
Monday, February 23, 2015



AT a meeting on February 17 Turin City Council approved the final design for the western extension of metro Line 1 from Fermi to Cascine Vica

The €340m project will be fully financed by the Italian government through the Unblock Italy programme and is now awaiting the green light from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and the Italian Committee for Economic Planning (Cipe).

The 3.4km extension will include a 3.2km underground section and four new stations, three of them underground

Then they need to add another 5-6 stations to the planned line 2 ending in Parco Sempione 2,2 km from Juventus stadium.

Great news. I would have hoped for a 8 stations extension connecting Turin to Rivoli with 50.000 inhabitants meaning an additional 4 stations.
Not just Collegno. But less is better than nothing.

GREAT news. Can't wait to see the final plan/stations. The city will benefit massively from this and a lot of people will move to the city or the suburbs because of better infrastructure. Finally the metro will take you to the centro storico and the two main piazzas =)

For the 10th anniversary of the inauguration of our first (and last) metro line, the local public transport company has published this time lapse, "how it works" video.



Works on the southern extension from Lingotto to Bengasi finally resumed after the failure of the firm that had won the tender. They should end in 2018.

The project for the western extension to Cascine Vica is still awaiting funding in Rome.
