Rome Hub, Priority Project no. 1 - upgrade of Rome Tiburtina Station


Rome Tiburtina station aims to become the gateway of Rome's high-speed/high capacity rail system, and it consequently serves as an intermodal hub within the urban area for both long distance and regional and metropolitan services.


The objective of this project, which is part of Priority Project 1 (Railway axis Berlin-Verona/Milano-Bologna-Napoli-Messina-Palermo), is to upgrade the scheme of the Rome-Tiburtina railway node and make it flexible enough to meet the requirements of future traffic flows, in particular high speed and high capacity traffic.


The project envisages a series of construction phases with specific works for: 

  • Rail infrastructure upgrading (elimination of junctions, laying of high-speed/high capacity tracks and tracks for metropolitan services)
  • Improving the technological security equipment and station circulation management systems
  • Complying with regulatory requirements
  • Upgrading infrastructure and services for passengers
  • Integrating other public works planned in the Rome Tiburtina area.

The works to implement the global project of the transport hub are already in progress.



This project has been completed.
