High Speed Railway

Italferr which is part of the consortium (RTI) formed by Pizzarotti (group leader), Itinera and Ghella has won the  the 312 million Euros contract for the design and execution of the works to double the line. This will increase speed on the Cancello-Frasso Telesino line, an important part of the new High Speed/High Capacity Naples - Bari line.

Part of the new rail track running from Cancello to Frasso Telesino (over 16 km, of

which about 3 km of viaducts and over 4 km of natural tunnels) will run alongside the existing line, and part will detour for about 6 km. The maximum speed will be 200 km/h, and two new stops are also planned at Valle di Maddaloni and Dugenta-Frasso Telesino, to serve the area around Caserta and offer a direct connection to Naples, Bari and Benevento.
