The call for tenders should be published by the end of 2015 and the winner will be chosen in the spring months: the city of Turin will be the contracting authority.
The project that involves the construction of the metro line 2 in Turin begins to be real. The resolution for the tender design of the new infrastructure has been, in fact, approved by the City Council.
The new alignment of the Line 2 will continue to cover North/South and East/West areas of the city and its length will be of about 21 kilometers, 14 in Turin and 7 in the town of Orbassano. The alignment has been divided into 4 lots in order to make the construction phase easier and to find the financial resources: the first stretch to be realized will be “Rebaudengo – Scalo Vanchiglia”, the second stretch will be “Cemetery – Parco Zappata”, the third one “Zappata – Porta Nuova” and finally the fourth between “Porta Nuova” and “Scalo Vanchiglia”.
With the approved resolution, three main variants have been also defined: the metro line 2 will pass close to the Einaudi’s university campus, in the area of Pescarito Interport in San Mauro Torinese and in Caio Mario square and Bengasi square.
The call for tenders should be published by the end of 2015 and the winner will be chosen in the spring months: the city of Turin will be the contracting authority and design will be totally external. For this project, the decree “Sblocca Italia” has made available 10 million Euros to the city of Turin.
