This project foresees the construction of the new Brescia-Verona-Padua High Speed/High Capacity railway line, which is part of the Milan-Venice High Speed/High Capacity axis. This line is of strategic importance at both a national and European level. In fact, it is one of the elements of the Mediterranean Core Corridor that will connect ports in the south of the Iberian Peninsula to eastern Europe, passing through the south of France, northern Italy and Slovenia.
The project will increase the offer of high-speed, regional and freight transport along the horizontal Milan-Venice route, guaranteeing a better separation of traffic flows, with a consequent increase in the capacity and regularity of the service, a reduction in travel time and an increase in the frequency of trains.
Vincenzo Macello was appointed Extraordinary Governmental Commissioner for completion of the works
