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.

History[edit]

The station was originally opened in 1866.[2]

In 2004, plans were prepared for an upgrade of the station,[3] with works commencing in 2007 at an expected cost of 155 million.[4] The new station is expected to handle 300,000 passengers daily.[5] By November 2011, all the works had cost €330 million.[6]

A fire broke out in the relay room on the west side of the station at 4am on 24 July 2011.[7] At 6am, water was cut from five neighbourhoods in order to facilitate efforts by the fire brigade to fight the fire.[8] The metro line B was also temporarily closed between Castro Pretorio and Monti Tiburtini.[9] 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.[10][11][12] 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.[10]

After 3 years of work, on 28 November 2011 the new station was inaugurated. 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.[13][14] The station is served by 140 high-speed trains and 290 regional trains every day.[14]
