METRO Line C – Route T6 - Rome

Building the Line C required the digging of 4.300.000 cubic metres of earth and more than 29 kilometres of galleries. Along the main planned route there are 30 stations, 21 of which are underground and 9 on the ground level, designed as wide and bright areas where functionality and comfort are perfectly combined. Those who designed the stations made use of the experience gathered by those who designed the same areas as meeting points, with shops, cultural, recreational activities, exhibition areas, automatic ticket offices and services.
In the periperical areas, where the stations were designed to be built on the ground level, the accomplished works were a chance to re-design the areas nearby the metro.
The Route T6, called Alessandrino-Torrenova is an 2,8 km long underground route, with maximum longitudinal slopes of the 35‰ and planimetric radii of curvature usually not lower than 270m has the 3 following stations:

  • Torrespaccata
  • Giglioli
  • Giardinetti

The Definitive Planning that was accomplished for the electric installations and special systems of the 3 stations, of the galleries and ventilation shafts relevant to the gallery routes between two neighbouring stations, concerned in particular the following points:

  • ordinary lighting system
  • emergency lighting system
  • anti-intrusion system
  • supervision system

The lighting system was planned for the technical premises, gallery and areas that are open to the public. The anti-intrusion system planned for the 3 stations and galleries of the route T6, consists of an addressing central unit, provided with a control master terminal, magnetic contacts and volumetric detectors placed on the field and interconnected through a parallel bus distribution system.
The anti-intrusion system ensures the control of the access to the various technical premises and to the gallery, through the ventilation shafts. The system consists of the following parts: a central unit that constantly monitors and supervises the condition of the peripherical sensors, the information processing and recording, the alarms management, the connection with the CCTV for the coordination of the video cameras, interfacing with the Supervision and Control general system, management of a local operator interface; the elements that consist of concentrator modules, sensors and electrical locks.
The anti-intrusion system is controlled by a central unit that is self powered and autonomous from a functional point of view, and it is interfaced with the Supervision and Control general system, which consists of autonomous under-systems, each one of which is subordinated to a specific plant. Each under-system can obtain and process the data coming from the field instruments, interfacing with the other under-systems.
