Trieste, Italy (PortSEurope) June 12, 2019 – An agreement has been signed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), the national railway infrastructure manager, and Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Adriatic Sea Port Authority) to increase the volume of rail services using the port.
This agreement, which represents an update of the document signed in 2016, will make it possible to increase the efficiency and operation of the piers with reduced manoeuvring, travel times and the positioning of trains as close as possible to loading areas.
The Trieste Campo Marzio station will be the most important hub serving the port. The new Port Regulatory Plan (PRP) of Trieste includes a new structure in the port to create a better connection with the piers V, VI and VII, the extension of the Franco Customs Point, and the elimination of the delimitation wall that does not allow the development of the area for the arrival and departure tracks.
The main benefit will be the reduction of shunting operations for arriving and departing trains, which results in a significant increase in production capacity.
Furthermore, the agreement refers to the upgrades already provided by RFI on the plants and lines belonging to the Campo Marzio station (Servola-Aquilinia port ridge) and works concerning the stations of Cervignano Smistamento and Villa Opicina, which, as envisaged in the Trihub project, constitute a single system for managing rail transport of goods coming from the port.
