"The project can be financed by putting together the resources invested by Italian railway state company and Italy's Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, for an estimated total of about 15 billion euros" he explained. "We are just launching a new phase which will lead us towards an improvement of public transports in Italy's largest cities" said Mazzoncini. Naples and other important cities should be included in the plan in the next years.

The agreement was signed in Rome by FS Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Chief Executive Officer Renato Mazzocini and Cassa Depositi e Prestiti Chief Executive Officer Fabio Gallia represents a response to the growing need to invest in urban transportation, a crucial sector for sustainable growth.

The accord signals the commitment of FS Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane and Cassa Depositi e Prestiti to actively cooperate in identifying and promoting projects related to new works to be carried out (greenfield initiatives) and to expanding existing infrastructures (brownfield initiatives), using an approach which encourages the participation of private capital, including public-private partnership schemes (PPPs). In this context, both companies are committed not only to improving urban mobility, but also giving impetus to a process of the urban transformation of Italian cities through the creation of a network of new generation integrated services, in favor of the individual person as well as the community.

The role of cities as an economic growth hub and growth generator is significant and increasing. Around 68% of the Italian population lives in urban areas where over 40% of Italian GDP is produced. The development of metropolitan networks is a strategic factor in integrated and sustainable collective mobility that can reduce levels of urban congestion and pollutant emissions, with a positive impact on productivity levels and socio-economic integration between the city center and periphery. The infrastructure gap to be filled is significant and with a notable impact on the competitiveness of Italian urban centers.


"Local infrastructure development is at the heart of the our strategy to support the country's sustainable growth. The partnership with FS Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane operates in this direction with the aim of accelerating investment in urban mobility, pushing for a process of 'urban transformation' with multiple positive, economic, social, and environmental impacts helping local communities." said CEO of Cassa Depositi and Prestiti, Fabio Gallia.

"FS Italiane, having facilitated high-speed travel between Italian cities with our Frecce trains, now commits itself to overcoming the urban infrastructure gap by designing, implementing and managing, in collaboration with local partners and local authorities, the necessary infrastructure" added Mazzoncini.

Emilia-Romagna to renew regional train fleet

THE Italian region of Emilia-Romagna has agreed a new public transport plan for 2018-2020 which includes the almost total renewal of the train fleet by 2019.

The deal was signed on December 11 by the region’s president Mr Stefano Bonaccini, the Metropolitan City of Bologna, and public and private partners, in the presence of Italy’s minister of infrastructure and transport, Mr Graziano Delrio, and the regional councillor for mobility and transport, Mr Raffaele Donini.

The deal envisages the purchase of 75 trains and 600 buses, improving road-rail integration by allowing around 36,000 rail commuters free travel on buses operating in 13 cities in the region, and the introduction of e-ticketing.

By 2019, 86 new Alstom Pop and Hitachi Rail Italy Rock EMUs will enter service to add to the Hitachi Vivalto push-pull double-deck coaches and Stadler Flirt EMUs already in operation. Rock double-deck trains can seat up to 600 passengers, while three-car Pop EMUs have more than 200 seats and the four-car version seats 300 passengers. Both types of train have a maximum speed of 160km/h, are air-conditioned, equipped with CCTV and electric power sockets, and have facilities for disabled passengers.

Next year, the Bologna - Ravenna and Bologna - Rimini lines will be upgraded in order to reduce journey times to 60 and 44 minutes respectively.

From January 2019 services currently operated by Trenitalia and TPER, under a 15-year concession awarded in July 2015, will be merged into a single railway company.

An agreement was also signed on December 11 between the region, Emilia Romagna Railway (FER), and Italian Rail Network (RFI) to transfer the management of the regional rail network to RFI. In addition, the network will be upgraded and safety improved under a 10-year €1bn infrastructure investment plan.

The Italian government, in cooperation with the regions, plans to reclassify some regional lines as railways of national interest, which could include the Parma - Suzzara - Ferrara, Casalecchio - Vignola Reggio Emilia - Sassuolo, and Reggio Emilia - Guastalla lines. The idea is for RFI to take over the management of these lines, thereby reducing the financial burden on the regional governments.
