A fundamental intersection of the national railway traffic system in Italy, Bologna Centrale station was (as of May 2015) the fifth in Italy for dimensions and volume of passenger traffic. Its approximately 78,000 m² are crossed annually by almost 60 million rail users. For this reason, in 2013, four tracks were built exclusively dedicated to the high speed trains that transit in the new underground station.
For the construction of the station, materials with high mechanical and chemical resistance, stability and durability were used, guaranteeing a good foundation for routine maintenance works.
