Another step forward for the Railway of the Two Seas.
From here to the achievement of the realization, however, there is still a long way to go.
In Rome, however, something is moving about the train that would connect San Benedetto del Tronto and the capital, the Adriatic and the Tyrrhenian.
During yesterday morning in Ascoli, in a meeting at Palazzo dei Capitani, they signed a letter of intent to undertake to undertake initiatives aimed at developing intermodality and the connectivity of railway stops with the reference urban context.
The estimated total cost of the railway that will cross the entire central Apennines to the capital is approximately two billion euros. 135 kilometers will be completed for the completion of the missing sections in the path that develops from the station of San Benedetto del Tronto to that of Roma Tiburtina, passing through Amatrice and Rieti.
“It is a pleasure to see such a broad union between mayors on a project that has been going on for over a hundred years – said Senator Giorgio Fede -. First of all, it must be said that it will not be easy to implement. A century of words so far have not led to Nothing. It is hoped that in the four-year period 2022-2026 a conspicuous economic resource will be allocated to the railway lines of the areas affected by the earthquake. Last July 40 million were allocated to the feasibility study relating to the Due Mari railway. An important step since it has been included in the Official Gazette. Finally, for the first time, we can start talking about something concrete “.
The traits to be completed are those that develop from Ascoli to Antrodoco and from Rieti to Fara Sabina (Passo Corese). Four stations to be put in place along the route: Acquasanta Terme, Arquata del Tronto, Accumoli and Posta. Instead, three are to be redeveloped: Ascoli, Antrodoco and Rieti.
