This project envisages stages of doubling the Codogno-Cremona-Mantua section.
The first phase envisages a doubling of the track along the Piadena-Mantua section for a total extension of some 34 kilometres, characterised by the construction of a new dual track as a variant between Piadena and Bozzolo and in close alignment with the existing railway in the remaining section.
The second phase concerns the doubling of the Codogno-Piadena section by about 50 kilometres.
Once fully operational, the track-doubling project shall increase traffic regularity through the elimination of public and private level crossings, also reducing train journey times.
Chiara de Gregorio was appointed Extraordinary Governmental Commissioner for completion of the works.
