A consortium comprising of Salini Impregilo (60%) and Astaldi (40%) has won a contract worth EUR397 million for the design and the construction of the Naples - Cancello section of the Naples to Bari highspeed railway line in Italy. 

It was commissioned by ITALFERR S.p.A., the project is scheduled for completion by 2022 and comprises the first section of the Naples to Bari line, a key part of the upgrading of the railway lines throughout the country.

The section between Naples and Cancello will bring rail services to the new Napoli Afragola station, which will act as the point of transfer between regional and high-speed services, improving access to rail services in Naples. The project also includes the construction of the Acerra station and two urban stations, namely Casalnuovo and Centro Commerciale. The section will extend for about 15.5 km, 2.9km of which will be a cut & cover tunnel, across the Casoria, Casalnuovo, Afragola, Caivano and Acerra areas.
