Milan Metro extension update


On 16/01/2016 the Municipalities of Milan, Cinisello Balsamo, Sesto San Giovanni and Monza, the Metropolitan City and the Lombardy Region gave the Milan Metro the contract to re- award the works to a new contractor. The original project was stopped for more than a year because of the failures of the previous contractor and their issues with alignments and financing. On the 01/12/2016 CIPE approved the funding of EUR23 million to continue the extension of line 1 and line 5 in Milan. The new underground station for the Red Line will be connected directly with the A4 motorway, the highway SS36 Monza - Lecco, the North Milan's ring road and the road to Monza. The works include the 1.9km line M1 extension from Sesto FS to Monza Cinisello stations at Bettola - with the intermediate station at Sesto Restellone – which includes 1.5 km of tunnels. The restart will begin in  March 2017 Work is scheduled  for completion by the summer in 2019.


Milan Metro have also been informed that they can have the funding to extend the M5 Line to Monza. This is thanks to financial contributions from the  Lombardy Region (EUR75,000), Milan (EUR75,000), Monza (EUR15,000) and Cinisello Balsamo (EUR15,000) Municipalities.
