Ecco la sensazione che fa la banchina con il tram fermo. Effetto corridoio?...ma va bene anche così




Piccolo "dissuasore" per evitare sgradite "intrusioni" negli attraversamenti pedonali


Cmq, bellissima atmosfera e la sensazione di aver partecipato ad un evento storico. Non capita spesso, a Palermo, specie in chiave positiva....

Buon viaggio, Genio!!


Here the official system information and map, by AMAT (the city's transit company, which will operate the tram as well) website:

Palermo rail project restarts
02 Aug 2017





ITALY: Work on the Anello rail line in Palermo restarted on July 29 following the government allocating an additional €50m to the project in April.

The project to create a circular line around the city centre is now 80% complete. This will use a former freight branch to the port and a mostly underground passenger line between Palermo Centrale and Giachery. A new section is being built to connect the line from Giachery to Notarbartolo, completing the circle. The line will remain single track, with services only running in one direction. Frequencies will remain at 30 min

Grazie al nostro inviato speciale.



Si lavora al secondo livello della parete lungo il profilo esterno del vano.
Al momento stanno installando le armature.

Completata la porzione inferiore dei tre setti, che verranno poi prolungati verso l'alto.
Come si diceva tra i setti dovrebbero trovare posto le scale fisse e quelle mobili (che azzardo saranno al centro, con la base dove vediamo l'apertura quadrata sulla platea).
Interessanti le aperture realizzate.

Light-Metro

Hi,

any news on light-metro Mondello - Oreto, now that Catanias metro is taking shape? Seems, that besides tramway north-south automatic metro would make sense in a city of that size and with a dense population, including high-rise buildings even in the outkirts. Yes, I know, money is a problem

In Berlin those new underground stations of railway with just painted walls would be spread over with Graffiti in less than a week.

Hi tunnel owl

Unfortunately, there is any news about the light-metro ("MAL" system, in italian), cause Palermo's local goverment stopped the project.
