SYSTRA’s engagement on Turin Metro began at the end of 1999, when the detailed design and supervision of works was carried out for Line 1 up until commissioning in successive phases in 2006 (delivered in time for the winter Olympics), 2007 and 2011.
At the end of August 2017, SYSTRA was awarded a contract to carry out the preliminary design for a second line. This project is being carried out as part of a joint venture led by SYSTRA SA and SOTECNI with Italian firms. With a length of 14.5km, Line 2 will cross Line 1 and serve 23 stations. Like Line 1, it will be fully automated and underground.
The new metro Line 2 is a formidable project for Turin and an opportunity for the city to equip itself with a new public transport service on an urban and territorial scale that crosses it entirely from north to south through the historic centre, opening the city to everyone and creating a vector of a renewed eco-responsible “governance”.
The design was conducted in order to leave the technological choice (linked to the specific supplier) to the following stages of development of the project. Consequently, the design guideline is based on a geometry of the stations and of the tunnel that is compatible with all the main automatic subway systems on the market.
Main features of the project:
- Length: 27.2 km, 32 stations
- 3 exchange car parks/intermodal nodes
- Traffic data: 36,000 passengers per hour
- Line design dimensional load: 16,000 PPHPD
- Characteristics of the different line sections:
- Central section: L = 15.46km, 23 stations
- Northern section: L = 5.70 km, 4 stations
- Southern section: L = 5.98km, 5 stations
- An intermediate terminal station (Anselmetti) and three terminals (Orbassano Centro, Rebaudengo and San Mauro).
