With a first maiden voyage, in the presence of local institutions and religious and civil authorities, the Undersecretary for Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility Giancarlo Cancelleri attended, this morning, the inauguration of the first of the new Titagarh Firema SpA trains for the metropolitan service of the city of Catania. The undersecretary was accompanied by the engineer Salvatore Fiore, General Manager of the Circumetnea Railway. "We are increasing the train fleet, 10 by the summer and, in stages, another 15 by 2026, to give Catania more and more the imprint of the European standard with a service that must necessarily bring the city among the most European with a subway service that decongest car traffic. In recent years we have financed the Catania metro with 1.5 billion euros with new routes to reach the airport and Paternò as well. The current commitment is to increase the fleet of trains also running on hydrogen ”continues Cancelleri. “The commitment to achieve new goals and improve the service is constant. In fact, on the one hand, I asked Minister Giovannini for a commitment of 5.2 million a year in the Mims decree to extend the train service up to 24 (now scheduled until 21) and to increase the frequency no longer to 15 but every 10 minutes. ; on the other hand, we are pursuing the desire to involve the Etna municipalities in a railway network ”explains the Undersecretary.
