Second section of Rome Line C opens
On 29 June the second section of Rome’s line C, from Mirti to Lodi, was opened to passenger service.
This second section lengthens the line by 5.5 km, and features 6 new stations, all underground.
The total line C section in operation now consists of 18 km and 21 stations.
The service is operated from 5:30 to 23:30 and is organised in two overlapped trips, from Lodi to Alessandrino and from Lodi to Montecompatri Pantano, each with a 12 minutes headway, so resulting in a 6 minutes headway from Lodi to Alessandrino.
The next step will be the extension by one more station to San Giovanni, thereby connecting line C with line A. This extension is scheduled for mid-2016.
