Rome-Neptune line and Rome-Naples line (via Formia) suspended due to the fall of lightning on an electrical substation in Cecchina: for tens of thousands of commuters these will be days of great inconvenience and on the Facebook pages there are already not trains, but protests and councils. And on the apps compulsively consulted by many workers and students, the “sop” sparks: race suppressed. Not to mention the disappointment linked to the inadequacy of replacement buses.
Already among the worst in Lazio together with the Roma-Lido, several times “awarded” with the Charon, the recognition with which commuters avenge disservices, the Fl8 will remain stationary until Friday 8 October to give the technicians to repair the failures of the power line. Ditto for the Fl7. In recent years, the older “rolling stock” (convoys) has been replaced with more modern, even advanced, means, but then there is still the problem of congestion of lines throughout the Roman metropolitan area, which sees 600 thousand people move every day.
In fact the railway traffic between Rome and Latina, Rome – Naples line (via Formia), and on the Rome-Nettuno line is suspended due to damage caused by bad weather to the technological systems of the line and the Torricola station. This was announced in a note by Trenitalia, explaining that “at the moment it is expected to be reactivated for Friday 8 October”. «Consequently – the note continues – there is no provision for the circulation of regional trains between Rome and Latina, Rome-Formia-Naples line, and between Rome and Nettuno. Some Intercity Days are replaced between Rome and Naples by a train shuttle that will travel along the AV line stopping in Aversa. Other Intercity Day and all Intercity Night travel the route via Cassino with longer travel times of about an hour and a half ». In the Roma Termini, Latina, Nettuno, Aprilia and Campoleone stations, the note concludes, Trenitalia’s assistance is active to inform and manage any travelers’ needs.
