The published decree of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers on the works considered strategic for the Jubilee, in part financed by the same decree and in part already financed by other instruments "but which we thought it useful to include so that they can benefit from the Jubilee simplification rules.
There are 62 mobility interventions in all in the decree divided equally over the four working groups that we have been following since the beginning of the union's term: increasing the quality and quantity of public transport and care of the railways, sustainability, active mobility and technological innovation." The Capitoline Councillor for Transport, Eugenio Patanè, writes this on Facebook. Here are "the first 26 interventions (out of the 62 planned) specific to the care of the rail , that in our opinion ; were the priorities that Rome has to get out of the pitiful state in which we found the infrastructure," Patanè continues.
The 26 interventions recalled by the alderman.
1) The supply of new subway trains for the A and B lines is financed: as you know we have awarded the tender for 30 new trains for the A and B. The first batch of 14 terni is already paid for and will start arriving from December 2024, with this intervention we finance the II batch of 16 trains of which 11 on the B and 5 on the A.
2) Completion of the renewal of the metro A track equipment: we are in the midst of replacing the track equipment on the A line from Anagnina to Ottaviano, an intervention that will be completed on December 8, 2023: with this funding we are also replacing the track equipment on the section from Ottaviano to Battistini.
3) The realization of the Smart Maintenance Project-Implementation of the new Global Data Collector (GDC) solution that aims to collect data from the different plants (events, alarms, measurements) and make them usable and harmonized, enabling the analysis of information and thus allowing the introduction of new value-added services.
4) On the subject of maintenance of the metro A line, we have planned the introduction and provision in place of the Centralized Train Traffic Control System (CTC) including a public information facility (IAP).
5) Also,on the topic of maintenance of the metro A and B lines, we have included the work on upgrading the power supply that has often been the cause of metro shutdowns.
6) On the maintenance of the B line of the Rome metro we have included as a priority intervention the upgrading of tunnel platforms and cable ways.
7) As part of the maintenance of the metro's A and B lines, funding has been earmarked for upgrading the fire-fighting water system and storage tanks.
8) Also, under maintenance of the metro A and B lines, we have earmarked resources for extraordinary maintenance of rolling stock.
9) We have provided a very important intervention for the upgrading of the 27 metro A stations to make them more functional and more beautiful. On the trams, the same redevelopment work is to be done as on the metros so:
10) as part of the tram depot plan, we have planned to upgrade the Porta Maggiore tram depot to accommodate the new trams that will arrive from December 2024.
11) The construction of the Centocelle East tram depot to serve the new Termini- Giardinetti-Tor Vergata tramway.
12) After buying the Via Severini area and identifying it as a depot and central workshops for 80 trams, we have earmarked in the decree, the resources for the first part of its construction.
13) We have earmarked in the decree additional resources for the renovation of the tram network in particular for the renovation of electric tram substations, cables and disconnectors.
14) Purchase of new trams for Rome's tramways: TVA - Termini-Venezia section and Venezia Vaticano Aurelio/Tiburtina/Termini- Giardinetti-Tor Vergata/Togliatti section. We also wanted the inclusion in the decree, of resources earmarked for Roma-Lido even though the infrastructure is now managed by the Lazio Region:
15) For the construction of the Giardino di Roma station and the Torrino Mezzocammino station.
16) For the construction of the pedestrian overpass connecting Dragona.
17) For the construction of two parking lots P1 and P2 at the Acilia-Dragona Station, an intervention that involves co-funding from the municipal budget. For the interventions on the Rome Railway Node included in the decree, it is useful to mention the most important ones:
18) The construction of the Pigneto railway station and connection to the metro station on line C.
19) The upgrading of the Roma San Pietro station and the square in front of it.
20) The adaptation of accessibility and redevelopment of the platforms and shelters of Roma Termini station.
21) The redevelopment of the Torricola station true gateway to the Appia Antica.
22) The redevelopment of the passenger building and accessibility adjustment of the Roma Tuscolana station.
23) The adaptation and redevelopment of the passenger building of the Roma Aurelia station.
24) The opening of the Marconi side accesses of Roma Trastevere station.
25) The redevelopment of the routes of the Fiumicino Aeroporto station. Finally, although already funded; work in order to be able to take advantage of commissarial and simplification powers we also included in the decree:
26) Magliana cable car.
"These are not all the interventions on mobility included in the decree of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, but only those on rail care. And they are not the only interventions on rail care because a great many others are financed with other resources. However, I wanted to emphasize the care and attention that this administration has given, is giving, and will give to the complete rehabilitation of the transportation infrastructure in all its key assets. Not just the new infrastructure but the complete replacement of the existing. "An immense work that will hand back to the Romans the subways, trams and assets of the Rome railway node in a condition of normality and in some cases of excellence as we had promised by the end of the Jubilee," so Patanè.
