Roma Tiburtina is the second largest railway station in Rome, after Roma Termini. Located in the north-eastern part of the city, it is being redeveloped as a hub for the Italian high-speed rail services instead of Termini, which is a terminal station, the station is connected to the Rome's Metro line B by Tiburtina metro station. The new Tiburtina is dedicated to the traditional regional trains and to the high-speed rail services on the Milan-Naples line, the new station is expected to reach a daily ridership of over 450,000 by 2015.[2][3] The station is served by 140 high-speed trains and 290 regional trains every day,[3] the major advantage of the station for high-speed services is that it is a through station, meaning trains travelling from Turin/Milan to Naples/Salerno do not need to turn around.

History[edit]

The station first opened in 1866.[4]

In 2001, a British University professor was killed when an escalator fell apart trapping her in a hole which had appeared. A local train driver, 38, who tried to free her also lost a leg, along with a third person who fell into the mechanism. [5]

In 2004, plans were prepared for an upgrade of the station,[6] with work commencing in 2007 at an expected cost of €155 million,[7] the new station is expected to handle 300,000 passengers daily.[8] By November 2011, construction totaled €330 million.[9]

A fire broke out in the relay room on the west side of the station at 4am on 24 July 2011.[10] Metro line B was temporarily closed between Castro Pretorio and Monti Tiburtini.[11] As the fire broke out in the relay room, most controls for tracks and traffic signals were rendered unusable, leaving a vital part of the Italian rail network disabled with significant train delays throughout the country.[12][13][14] The damage to the structure rendered the building in danger of collapse, with problems and delays going on for a long time after the accident.[12]

After 3 years of work, on 28 November 2011 the new station was inaugurated and dedicated to Cavour.
