The expected doubling of the Cremona-Mandua railway line, at least in the area between Piedona and the Virgilian capital, comes from Lombardy Regional Transportation Councilor Claudia Dersey’s response to Councilor Matteo Pilloni on Friday.
“The forecast is that work will begin in March 2022 and the first phase, in November 2025, will see the implementation of the Mandova Piedona Division,” Piloni said.
However, a few days ago, on November 19, the approval order for the General Plan of Action “On the implementation of the Kodokno-Gromona-Mandua duplication” signed by the Extraordinary Commissioner Sierra de Grigorio was published on the FS website. . Also included is a table of next steps that illustrate in detail the various preparatory stages for the integrated construction of the work: the conclusion of the environmental impact assessment by December 2021 and the conclusion of the accreditation process with the Services Conference in March 2022 “Design and construction of the railway structure ready for approval and operational phase, which will begin in December 2022.” It is expected to end in June 2026: after 43 months and 1294 days.

Pilloni also points out the merits of the announcement made by Tercy at the beginning of the feasibility study of the other Crimones Lines – section. Cremona – Olmenetta: Happens at the beginning of the New Year. “Compared to the promises made by the RFI, even though it is a year late, this is a positive and important response,” Piloni said. Last October I posed a question again to the region because it is important to focus on all the ways of our province. The section between Cremona and Olmeneta is a fundamental intervention involving six railway divisions – the most frequented passenger routes, including the Fresia-Gromona and Treviglio-Gromona lines – and will greatly enhance the quality of service and increase frequency. In favor of improving the timing, order and safety of passenger transport and at the same time adapting to the trans-Patano freight movement ”.
Update on line upgrades as well Cremona-Crema-Treviclio, And especially the construction of the Casalputano crossing site, the inclusion in the programming is now being evaluated by RFI. Technical discussions are underway with the municipalities involved on the Cremona-Grema-Treviglio line to find alternatives to suppress existing level crossings. Instead, the realization of a complete doubling of the line serves to put forward the demand for the region to provide RFI with the best infrastructure and mobility solution for the Paullese-Crema area in the next request table.
“A few days ago, the region announced that it had invested $ 597 million in railways, in addition to the one billion announced by the RFI for Lombardy. Not by the end of the year, ”Pilloni concludes. GB
