In progress

The link of the new High Speed/High Capacity line extends for approximately 7 kilometers underground with two parallel tunnels at an average depth of approximately 20 metres, completed with two terminal sections on the surface: to the north between the stations of Firenze Castello and Firenze Rifredi, and to the south near the Florence Campo di Marte station. The tunnels will be excavated with mechanized techniques using a tunnel boring machine.

The new HV/HS Firenze Belfiore station will be built along the underground route. Served by high-speed trains, it will be interconnected with the Santa Maria Novella station and the entire surrounding urban area thanks to different modes of transport: the new people-mover that will operate between the new station and Santa Maria Novella, line 2 of the system city tram already in operation and the new surface railway stop called Circondaria.
