The project will run for some 18.7 kilometres between the towns of Avellino and Benevento and includes the construction of a station at Hirpinia and a stop at Apice, three tunnels and four viaducts.
The new line, which will allow trains to travel up to 200 kilometres an hour, is added to another part of the Naples-Bari line: a 15.5-kilometre section between Naples and Cancello, commissioned by Rete Ferroviara Italiana, a unit of Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, the state-owned railway company.
