The cancellation of "Chiesa Nuova" station isn't confirmed yet, but is true there are a lot of problems for that station.
Is still visible on the official map in the official site. At the moment the only one station officially cancelled is "Argentina", between "Chiesa Nuova" and "Venezia"

If this gentleman is right, the center of Rome will never be served by line C.



He believes that line C won’t be able to pass under the historic center. Even if it does, it will be without stops between the Colosseum and the Vatican.

The worst news is that the cost of the project will jump to 5,000,000,000 euros.

That's not true. The cost is about 3,5 milliard of euros.

It is just propaganda made by a committee that are opposing at metro C. They only tell half-truths.

They have their ideas, but is the opposite that say the technicians, engineers and experts

That video is a bunch of BS! Don't trust Metro C haters, believe only in this forum members and Roma Metropolitane for reliable information.

I might be getting ahead of myself, but isn't there a D line in the works, too?

EDIT: Ooops...I saw it on the map on page 1. When is that scheduled to open?

When I was in Rome in 2007, I was surprised how compact the city center was...and how 2 lines were OK for getting around. However I am sure people who live outside of Rome would disagree...

Line D is planned but not yet in construction. And maybe, the actual mayor wants to change the route projected avoiding the city center, turning around it...

Lines A and B are insufficient for serving all the city, and actually in the rush hours the central paths of both lines are always overcrowded. Line C, and in future, the D, were projected for decongesting the lines A and B.

It's really about time to open up Linea C. So far public transport in Rome is a disgrace.

As today works in progress regard T4, T5, T6A and T7 spans.

T1,T2 and T3 spans have received major delays due to the lack of money and to archeological straits.

The first spans, from MonteCompatri/Pantano to Parco di Centocell stations are scheduled to open to public service in spring 2012.

Here are some pics directly from MetroC SpA official websiste.

Most pics were shot in September 2011.

Good job, Tool...
Anyway...don't forget to say there are "movements" on via dei Fori Imperiali, not far from the Colosseo...in a near future it'll become a real construction site for the new subway station!
