Genoa, Italy (PortSEurope) December 22, 2020 – The new configuration of the PSA Pra’ port, which with the entry into operation of two new tracks brings the lines serving the container terminal to six, allows an increase in the overall capacity of trains to and from the Pra’ basin, supporting the increasing demand for rail traffic and helping to reduce CO2 emissions Safety standards have
also improved due to the new Integrative Automatic Protection System (PAI-PL) with laser technology installed on the level crossing and dedicated to the detection of obstacles between the barriers, The activities represent the last and definitive phase of the upgrading investments made since 2018 which involved the Genoa Prà airport with the complete reconstruction of the four existing tracks, the doubling of the connecting track between the terminal and the arrivals / departures bundle, the arrangement of the eastern side root and numerous further completion interventions to support greater efficiency and potential of the plant. Subsequently, with the definitive Master Plan, RFI will complete the works by strengthening the airport with 7 tracks of 750 meters module, European reference standard, to fully support the development of rail freight traffic to and from the port system of the Ports of Genoa. The infrastructure was built by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana and Italferr, part of FS Italiane Group, with the collaboration of the AdSP Mar Ligure Occidentale, PSA and all the railway operators with a total economic investment of approximately €35 million.
