Regular passenger services on the 7 km Valle Aurelia to Vigna Clara section of Roma’s orbital ring railway began running with the summer timetable on June 13, 32 years after a service was provided for eight days during the Italia 90 FIFA World Cup.
There are initially nine trains per day in each direction, with no service on Sundays. Six of the trains run through from Vigna Clara as far as San Pietro and three continue to Ostiense. Interchange to metro Line A is provided at Valle Aurelia.
The long-disused Vigna Clara station has been modernised at a cost of €6·1m, with the building renovated, platforms upgraded, escalators replaced and lighting and equipment rooms refreshed.
Speaking at the opening, RFI Director General Vera Fiorani said the infrastructure manager hoped to complete double tracking by 2025 and extend the line to Nomentana to provide a full ring around the city.
