The section between Treviglio and Brescia is under construction, and might open before the end of the decade. 25 kV AC + ETCS, this time.

Hi, I read on this forum that Italy is building the section from Venice to Milan, how many sections of high speed rail are constructing Italy? Is there any web page with that sections? (I don't mind if is in italian, I speak spanish and I think that is understable)

Is the section between Milan and Lyon under construction?

The line between Torino and Milano has been opened for more than 3 years already. The works on Torino-Lyon are, at the moment, mostly concentrated on exploratory works on the base tunnel.

You can find more info about high speed projects here (not a very good site but still...): http://www.rfi.it/cms/v/index.jsp?vg...0080a3e90aRCRD

If the link doesn't work, go here ( http://www.rfi.it/ ) then click "Rete e Territorio" and then you will find the sub-menu with infrastructure information .

Thank you for the page, I checked and I'm surprising with Napoli-Bari high speed section and sicily sections. I didn't know that in Sicily were a sections of high speed rail.
The section to Bari is some rare, because there are sections already constructed and the other sections are only in planning stage. Why?

Both cases are upgrades sections with some new tunnels and re-alignments, not greenfield high-speed lines.

The line between Napoli and Bari has already exists, but it isn't HS. They are upgrading it, but it is quite difficult, because this line must go over (or under ) Appennini Mountains.
Old line (mostly with single rail) has a very winding path (there's why they use tilting trains ETR600), so they have to do a really hard work of re-construction.
That's why works are pretty slow.

The parts that are already built were the easiest to adapt, and now they're planning/building the hardest ones.

I read an article in internet that Italy in the last 10-12 years is boosted their infraestructures, not only HSR, but also motorways and conventional railways.
Since Italy is in recession (like Spain ) How the government is planned to pay all of these new investments? With more debt?
In Spain the government is adding more debt to finish some projects an stopping others.

Italy and Switzerland are on track to restore the severed rail connections within the next few years. The first positive sign is that first class passengers will be able to use the stations lounges in both countries.
