Cusano / Cormano railways station updates

Parcheggio bici e moto al coperto sul lato Cormano


Un Asso-Milano in transito dalla nuova stazione


Il frontale della nuova stazione da Cusano Milanino


Velostazione al coperto ma incostudita lato Cusano


DAB e convalidatrice lato Cusano


Info lato Cormano


Il largo sottopasso che unisce i due lati e le due banchine (le due banchine hanno anche le uscite dirette al sottopasso veicolare delle vie Marconi e Sauro al confine fra i due comuni)

Nel complesso è venuto fuori un ottimo intervento, ancora molti i lavori di fino oggi, c'èrano operai che tinteggiavano muri e colonne sulla banchina a isola (quella in servizio), inoltre ancora molti i lavori da fare (il piazzale del parcheggio lato Cusano ha ancora parte dell'area in cantiere).

I think it is not useful to omit the Passante sector of the S-system, at the very least, and ideally all Passante stations within ATM area.

My suspect is that they made 'em messy on purpose.
Tourists who wanted to visit Expo will probably take the metro and not the train.

More money for Atm and less for Trenord

A global transport authority for every kind of public transport is needed

That's the problem: to fit it in the frame, it gets unreadable. Letters became to small.
In this case You have to quit any geographical reference (it's the less important information, so You can give it up), and make something complete schematic, without twist and turns.

According to this article, there is a corporate sponsorship arrangement for the station that serves the Milan soccer stadium:

Quote:
Meanwhile, city hall has announced that the project for commercial sponsoring of metro stations has signed its first contract. For a contribution of €180,000, Mediaset Premium has won the right to have the final station of the line officially called “S. Siro Stadio Premium Mediaset” on all signs. Valid for a year, and with an option to renew for a further year, the contract also allows Mediaset – the media arm of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s holding company Fininvest, which is now negotiating the sale of its football team AC Milan – to use the same slogan on all conventional advertising in the station.
The official map thankfully does not show the sponsor name:

http://www.atm.it/it/ViaggiaConNoi/P...rete_metro.jpg

I really sympathize with the Italian people for having to deal with a corrupt leadership that's basically giving away naming rights to a company controlled by the former king. In Philadelphia, the SEPTA subway system entered into a similar arrangement for sponsorship for its station serving the football stadium, but there the payment was $5.44 million over 5 years.

In my controversial opinion, Linate airport should close and be converted into a cluster of high-rises wrapping around the old Idroscalo lake (which was a former landing site for hidroplanes btw). Then, a new rail spur should be build allowing Bergamo airport to become the second Milan airport. The new subway line 4 would help that.

But this is almost off-topic.

This map is on S trains, for the M lines i would prefer a lighter trait for the S lines.

Fares are the same, it is also a train (not a tram or a busway cheating as railway), and at least on the core sectors like the Passante the S system works like a subway for all purposes.

I left Milano in 2009, so plenty of things might have changed ever since. I do remember, though, some of my friends there, who have lived most or all their lives in the city, were amused when I mentioned something like using the Passante trains. Several had a vague idea of what the Passante was, and one, for which using it would slash down his commute time, had never ever considering trying it, though he lived not far from Porta Vittoria and was using much slower and unreliabe surface services for years.

As for the S-lines, they could represent them with less lines and colors. For instance, S5 and S6 could be a single line on the map, graphically, diverging at ends. They could also "collapse" all lines between Lancetti and P. Vittoria.

On a side note, I think stations Bovisa and Vilapizzone should be both demolished and replaced by a single tri-level station where both railways meet/cross. Not gonna happen though :sad:

At least outside Milan municipality boundaries.

For istance to reach Expo site (Rho-Fiera railways and metro station in Rho municipality) one way ticket costs 1.50 € by metro and 1.20 € by train

A better integration of fares is needed.
And, as I previously said in one of my posts, a metropolitan transportation authoriy is needed as well.

I hope Metropolitan City which has been just established will do something in that direction

I don't know what I was thinking
