History[edit]

The station was opened along with the rest of the line from 18 May 1939, becoming however operation only since 20 July 1940[1] because of the need to complete several systems[2] and the absence of the rolling stock.[3]

From 21 January 1961, in advance to the end of the concession to the "Società Ferrovia Biella-Novara (SFBN)" company, the management of the railway line passed to the state and the exercise of the stations was assumed by Ferrovie dello Stato.[4]
