Beautiful station, yes, but is it necessary? Napoli is a huge city while Salerno is tiny. To loose customers to Napoli for those going to Salerno does not make sense.
So questions to those in the know:
- Is this construction in relation to an ongoing or upcoming extension of HSR to Reggio de Calabria or Palermo?
- Is the station somehow convenient for outer districts of Napoli?
- Could trains heading from Rome to Bari stop there or is the junction (Casserta) north of here?

I agree with Baron Hirsch, it's quite strange, especially about loosing customers ...

Thanks, Martin. Just checked a map to answer my own last question. The future station is south of the junction to Caserta (-Bari), a connection could only work by reversing and detouring, so would not be convenient. Only if a more southerly HSR to Bari is built would the new station be of advantage for the east coast.

Yes, that's the idea, but it's not going to happen very soon.

Totally. The area around Afragola is extremely dense and a lot of inhabitants would benefit from the connection with the suburban rail and better access by car.

They should build another rail line towards Bari soon, and I guess it will be designed in order to use Afragola train station. However I haven't seen any map or plan of the future line.

Afragola will have two main roles:

Service the immense north naples metro area, home to about 2 million people for whom is difficult to get to Napoli centrale

Speed up connection to Salerno and Calabria: today trains have to go to Centrale, invert and go back out to the north Vesuvio line. With this station all trains going South will save 30 minutes

Will trains ending or starting at Napoli Cle. also stop in Afragola for connections?

I looked on the project page but it doesn't say much, just a lot of promises on the benefits of taking Circumvesuviana there and streamlining regional traffic out of Napoli.

Nothing is preventing it but it will depend on the commercial choices Made by the two operators in Italy

These car-train stations tend to be popular thought, I would not be surprised if they did

They will also build Vesuvio Est High Speed Park-and-Ride station


These cylindrical structures are "low-footprint" parking garages

Its main hall remembers Avignon TGV

Vesuvio Est is on earlier stages, though. There is still no specific money set aside to build the station though the design has been approved.

Are there any other HSR projects currently under construction or likely to be soon under construction in Italy?

Italian railways showcase 'stunning' new Frecciarossa

Ferrovie dello Stato, Italy's state-owned railway company, this month presented its new technological gem, the high-speed Frecciarossa 1000 train, to President Giorgio Napolitano at a ceremony in Rome. The Frecciarossa 1000 was built as part of a wider 5 billion-euro investment plan aimed at modernizing the railroad comapny's fleet, also though the investment of 1.5 billion euros in the production of regional trains. It can reach speeds of as high as 360 kilometres per hour. The machine is billed as "the most stunning high-speed train in the world" by its owner, Ferrovie dello Stato's passenger transport unit Trenitalia. The model boasts a metallic snake-like body that showcases flexibility and style. Its red and grey colours travel up the aerodynamic body with elegance and style, and its interiors showcase comfort and design.

"Frecciarossa 1000 is unique in the international scenario owing to its technological innovations, technical performance, interoperability, design, quality and safety", Ferrovie dello Stato said in an emailed statement. It is "set to raise the current technical, environmental, external and internal aesthetic standards, while guaranteeing maximum performance and travel comfort". It was released from the AnsaldoBreda production plant on March 26, and has since started its whirlwind promotional tour. Ferrovie dello Stato has commissioned a total of 50 Frecciarossa 1000 models to embellish the tracks that criss-cross Italy. The company currently has 60 ETR500 Frecciarossa trains running the tracks across Italy, reaching speeds as high as 300 kilometres and bringing passengers swiftly and safely to destination. It operates the ETR610 Frecciargento model - the so-called "Silver Arrow" train - mainly used to connect up the capital city of Rome with the prime time tourist destination of Venice, through speeds of as high as 250kmh.

It is forecast to start carrying passengers at the end of 2014 or in early 2015. Trenitalia also has some 70 regional trains under production as part of a separate project won by French power-equipment and train maker Alstom. AnsaldoBreda is owned by Finmeccanica, Italy's state-owned defence company. Bombardier is the world's third-largest planemaker, and also owns train producer Bombardier Transportation.

Roma Tiburtina is served by 290 regional and 140 high speed trains. It is expected to reach a ridership of 45,000 a day by 2015

Hum... It is not a HSR line. Only the padova-Venezia reach 200 km/h. Theoretically also Milan-treviglio

Wouldn't still be in this category? I mean, is it based on the speed or in the kind of train?
