In 1970 the FS undertook the construction of a new line about 260 km in length, for the quadrupling of the Rome-Florence link. After explaining the reasons and aims of this project, this paper will illustrate the criteria adopted for the infrastructure construction project, with a view to procuring the greatest capacity from the quadrupling, by mixed operation capable of development for specialization of the new track alignment for very high speeds. An outline is also given of the technical features and methodology adopted for the building of tunnels, viaducts and embankments, including details of the development of the work and the cost comparison factors.
