Systra-Sotecni awarded of two main lots of tramways of Rome Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan

These two sections make up a total of 27.2 km out of the 37.3 km recently tendered out by the municipality and together they will account for an estimated demand forecast of 190,000 daily passengers, more than 75% of total of 250,000 expected for all five lots.

Lot 4 includes two major corridors in the eastern area of the city aimed linking the ‘Città delle Torri’ (235.700 ab.), Tor Vergata campus with the University Hospital and the intermodal node of Anagnina. New corridors to be designed rapresent indeed the completion of Termini-Tor Vergata line (Line G) and new line H.

The Line G stretch it is about 3 km long from one end, at University Rectorate and southern hospital entrance, towards the ‘Città della Conoscenza’ (City of knowledge) where new park and ride at Torrenova exit of highway A1 is foreseen. The new corridor will also serve the Bank of Italy headquarters and the INFN laboratories and Enea Research Centre of Frascati (via shuttle bus). Among design objectives there is also feasibility  analysis of for future further extensions towards Frascati.

Line H is the evolution of Torre Angela – Anagnina LRT conceived initially as an laternative to line A extension. Now it will be integrated with G line in order to create possibility for integrated and branched services on all four lines. The new line is about 10 km long from Viale dell’Archeologia to Anagnina. Design will also comprise a new depot, initially located at MC station of Torre Angela, for about 30 vehicles.

Lot 5 is the southwestern extension of the “Togliatti tramaway”: Ponte Mammolo – Piazza di Cinecittà, which is financed by DM607/2019 as part of the National Recovery Plan.

The project involves the construction of 14.8 km of new tram corridor from Piazza di Cinecittà to Trastevere station through Appia Antica Park, Tor Marancia, Viale del Caravaggio, Basilica di San Paolo (Line B interchage)and Viale Marconi.

Design will be carried out with the full involvement of leading expert archaeologists under the supervision of the Archaeological Department within the Ministry of culture, in order to identify the best solution for tramway insertion in a unique wrold heritage context. Today it is unfortunately served by car 9 times out of 10.

The corridor is designed within an operational scheme (Rome Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan) that foresees a 24-km tangential line from Ponte Mammolo to the Basilica San Paolo passing through the Appia Antica Park called “10” with an estimated traffic demand of 150,000 daily passengers.

SYSTRA strengthens its expertise in tunnels with the acquisition of the Italian company SWS

SYSTRA, the global engineering and consultancy leader in public transport and mobility solutions, announced today that it has reached an agreement to acquire the Italian engineering company SWS, specialised in the design of tunnels and underground structures. The acquisition strengthens SYSTRA’s expertise in the specialty domain, expands its presence in Italy, and its global market footprint in tunnel design and construction, particularly in Europe.   

By acquiring SWS, SYSTRA confirms its ambition to be a world leader in tunnel and underground infrastructure engineering. The two companies are highly complementary: SYSTRA, leader in global railway and metro engineering, its core business, works throughout the world on the biggest railway and metro infrastructure projects. It also partners with construction companies on major road or railway bridge projects. SWS’s experience is more focused on large design and construction projects of tunnels and underground structures.  

The newly strengthened Bridges and Tunnels Centre of Excellence, capable of rapidly mobilising large teams of experts both locally and internationally, will support clients seeking a full service from design to construction. Thanks to this turnkey, customised service, the contractors will be able to improve the competitiveness of their projects in terms of deadlines, costs and sustainability, while meeting the demands of owners and users, whose environmental awareness has increased, and safety criteria, which have become more stringent. It is also an expertise hub that can be mobilised on all infrastructure projects for which SYSTRA is project manager.   

SYSTRA, the signature team for transportation solutions, is therefore expanding its expertise portfolio and accelerating its development. This acquisition also enables the Group to increase its presence in Italy, a key market where it has been present since 2000 through its subsidiary SYSTRA SOTECNI. Furthermore, it provides access to new markets, particularly in Europe, where SWS has acquired a solid reputation with its clients. 

This agreement comes at a time of rapid growth in the European infrastructure market. The European Union is investing to support Member States in their projects to renew and develop infrastructure, including tunnels and underground structures, which are contributing to the construction of a borderless and increasingly interconnected Europe. 

We are delighted to welcome SWS’s talented team of underground and infrastructure engineering specialists to the Group. By combining the complementary expertise of our two companies in our Global Bridges and Tunnels Centre of Excellence, we will offer our clients a unique range of services in this field. This new acquisition of a technological jewel confirms our growth strategy to make SYSTRA the signature team for transportation infrastructure engineering.” 

Pierre Verzat, Chairman of SYSTRA’s Executive Board

Many engineers from both companies have worked together in the past and I know that we share the same approach to technical excellence. Stronger together, our teams will offer exceptional expertise to our clients, guaranteeing the success of their projects, while keeping R&D in mind to allow us to stay ahead of the game.   

Paolo Mazzalai, SYSTRA SWS’s Chairman
