The reactivation of the Vigna Clara-Valle Aurelia section represents, as underlined by the “Ferrovie dello Stato” Italian railways, "an important first step towards the closure of the railway ring and a fundamental goal for sustainable transport in North Rome, thanks to the connection with the A and B metro lines and the FL3 railway line to Viterbo".
"The station's restyling has completely modified and renovated the passenger building, creating primary and secondary services for passengers, upgrading the platforms serving the trains, replacing the lifts, modernizing the technological rooms, lighting systems and signs. All of this improves the accessibility of the railway infrastructure, allowing transport services to be used by all citizens, without barriers and with ease. The total investment made for building the Vigna Clara station has been around EUR 6.1 million.”
