Milano Line 5: the first driverless metro in the city
The line is being built by the Metro 5 SpA consortium, which will operate and maintain the new stretch for a period of 25 years.
The 2nd phase will have 1.9 km and will extend the line south to Isolo and Garibaldi (end of 2013), and a further 7 km extension to San Siro Stadium will open for the Expo 2015. In this time the line will have reached a total of 12.6 km and 19 stations, which will be equipped with platform screen doors to prevent track intrusions.
Rolling stock is formed by 10 four-car AnsaldoBreda trains (same as the Copenhagen Metro).
