Torino - Modane adaptation

Torino - Modane adaptation

The project envisages the construction of a new line as a route variant from Avigliana to Orbassano station, for a total development of about 24 kilometres, of which about 17 kilometres is in tunnels. Preliminary work is also planned for the getting the Orbassano transport hub back into operation along with enhancing the performance of the existing Bussoleno-Avigliana line through technological upgrading, adaptation to the technical specifications of interoperability, the elimination of certain level crossings, the construction of two new signalling controls and the acoustic restoration of the section.


  • The project shall allow for an overall increase in capacity from 10 trains/hour/direction on the current line to 20 trains/hour/direction on the two lines overall.
  • The regularity of traffic will also be improved through the specialisation of traffic on the two lines.
  • For the long-distance trains that will run on the new line, a reduction in journey times may also be achieved.
  • Possibility of managing trains up to 750 metres long in the Turin-Orbassano facility.
