Design of the new master plan of the Lambrate railway station


Milan's Lambrate railway station currently serves around 700 freight and passenger trains daily. With the upcoming opening of the new Gotthard and Ceneri tunnels linking northern and southern Europe, this number is expected to increase to up to 800 trains per day - well above the station’s current capacity.


This project, part of TEN-T Priority Project 6 (Lyon-Trieste-Divaca/Koper-Divaca-Ljubljana-Budapest-Ukrainian border rail link) covers the preliminary and final design studies to increase the capacity of the station.


It will also contribute to removing bottlenecks on the TEN-T Priority Project 1 (Railway axis Berlin-Verona/Milano–Bologna–Napoli–Messina-Palermo) and Priority Project 24 (Railway axis Lyon/Genova-Basel-Duisburg-Rotterdam/Antwerpen).



State of progress on 31 December 2014:
The preliminary design study has been completed and approved by the infrastructure manager.
