Giovanni Zannola and Mariano Angelucci, chairmen of the Capitoline Mobility and Tourism commissions, respectively, announced that a Mobility Commission meeting was held Wednesday, Aug. 3, on the future construction of the "G" metro line. This new line would connect Termini to Tor Vergata, widening the railway line that now connects Termini station to Centocelle.
"All the constraints for the realization of the project have been overcome," they said, "and work is scheduled to begin in 2023: 13 kilometers of track and 22 new trams that represent an important development opportunity. The goal is to connect the eastern part of Rome, which suffers from heavy deficiencies in terms of infrastructure related to public transport, with one of the main hubs of the capital where travelers will be able to use buses, metro, trams and cabs."
"This is certainly important and complex work that will improve the lives of more than half a million people living and moving between Municipalities I, V and VI and it will allow the integration of the University of Rome Tor Vergata with the rest of the city. The project, strongly requested by citizens, will also involve the redevelopment of Via Antonio Ingegnoli with great benefits for the Torrenova and Tor Vergata neighborhoods. Last June, the confirmation of the State Superintendence arrived and currently the final design is being completed. We hope to complete the first section of the new line between Tor Vergata and Parco Di Centocelle by Jubilee 2025. A great deal of work has been carried out in recent months, with Mayor Gualtieri and Transportation Councillor Eugenio Patanè," Zannola and Angelucci conclude.
