Palermo-Catania doubling of the railway line

Lot 3 (Lercara-Caltanissetta) and Lot 4a (Caltanissetta-Enna)

The new Palermo-Catania line, an integral part of the European TEN-T Scandinavia-Mediterranean railway corridor, is one of the measures planned to improve mobility in Sicily.
We dealt with the review and validation of the final design geological model of Lot 3 and 4a, based on geological-stratigraphic and geomorphological data, interpretation of core-drilling and seismic sections, on site and in lab geotechnical tests and hydrogeological borehole tests.
