Cesano-Bracciano track-doubling

Cesano-Bracciano track-doubling

This project foresees a doubling of the Rome-Viterbo line in the section between the Cesano and Bracciano stations. The new track-doubling, with a total length of around 16 kilometres, runs partly alongside the existing track and partly as a track variant. The elimination of all level crossings currently present on the section concerned is also envisaged.

Vincenzo Macello was appointed Extraordinary Governmental Commissioner for completion of the works.

  • Reduced travel time.
  • Increased accessibility and regularity of traffic.
  • Creating the conditions to increase the metro-type service to Bracciano station.
