Mostra (2, 6, 7),
Bagnoli - Giusso,
Currently in use by Cumana line
of S.E.P.S.A. to connect Naples to
Pozzuoli and Torregaveta.
a) section Leopardi-Bagnoli:
will be modified and three stations will be added in the Bagnoli area: Campegna, Cederna and Coroglio;
b) section Bagnoli-Terme:
already existing, stations Bagnoli and Dazio.
Line 8 answers two questions. The first is to close the wound represented by
ground-level Cumana line cutting Bagnoli in two parts; this will allow to
easily connect the area to seaside and to main city roads. The second is
to create a new metro line serving the new Coroglio-Bagnoli area; this line
will be well linked to both urban and regional public transport.
The new line 8 will have a length of about five kilometers,
seven stations and is the improvement in the section Dazio - Leopardi
of current Cumana line, running from Torregaveta to
The project implies line going underground, with a slope of
29,99‰, in Lucio Silla Street, until Bagnoli station.
After new station Giusso (formerly Bagnoli), underground, line 8 turns towards coastline and
crosses a formerly industrial area by shaping a wide curve, then it reaches Campegna Street by following
Posillipo hill. It finally turns right, crosses two one-track tunnels and enters
tracks at Campi Flegrei station.
Maximum slope of final rise is
while along the whole line the maximum slope is
14,44‰. Minumum curve radius is 400 metres.
Line will be totally underground, and will run at an as-minimal-as-possible depth due to water presence
at a few metres, needing to reduce as much as possible pressure on tunnels.
Tunnel excavation will take place in open air.
Distances between stations along the line range within 640 and 1170 metres.
Influence areas of the stations, when measured with a 500-metre radius, cover almost
completely the area, everywhere overlapping except between the two stations Campegna
and Campi Flegrei.
Hypothesized total cost is about 280 billion Lire, if the line is built when
the Bagnoli area is built, otherwise about 350 billion Lire, if it takes
place in a second phase.
Foreseen train frequency:
Foreseen number of passengers:
Global flow for the seven stations in rush time (7.00 am- 9.30 am in workdays)
is about 3,000 entering and 6,000 exiting passengers.
This means 27,000 entering and 54,000 exiting passengers per day;
the yearly figures are then about 10 million entering and 20 million exiting passengers.

The area served:
Linea 8 will serve an area which is going to be completely reconverted and rebuilt:
it has been an industrial area, and recently steel industries have been closed to create a new
tourism/ residential/service area with, among other, a public park, tourism wharfs, hotels, a beach, and
the City of Science with a Research zone.
Project funded, works to start.
