Railway link to Venice Airport

The objective of the project is to create an intermodal link between the Marco Polo Airport and the existing Venice-Trieste railway network, in line with the European directives aimed at increasing rail transport and the strategic development lines defined by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, which have identified Venice as one of the airports of national interest for which accessibility and intermodality must be strengthened.
The Project involves the construction of a new section of AC line. 8 km that, starting from the junction with the historical Venice-Trieste line, consists of an initial double-track section that runs mainly uncovered in close proximity to the A27 motorway link road, while near the airport it becomes single-track in order to create the ‘loop’ configuration that provides a single through track and a passing track at the new airport station. The connection with the historic line is double-track on the Venice side and single-track on the Trieste side, with turnouts that can be travelled at 60 km/h.
The new link can be used by both long-distance and shuttle-type regional trains, being functional to the needs of the S.F.M.R.

Project Details

The new railway infrastructure in question was designed to create a new intermodal link between the existing Venice-Trieste railway line (Mestre-Latisana section) and Venice’s ‘Marco Polo’ airport. The new railway line is realised as an ‘antenna’ connection; starting from the existing railway line almost up to the entrance of the airport area, the railway line runs essentially in the open, while the remaining part is realised in a tunnel (airport area). In terms of railway layout, the new link consists of a double-track junction on the Mestre side (main link) and a single-track junction on the Trieste side. The start of the intervention on the Mestre side is planned at the progressive km 8+772 of the L.S. Mestre-Latisana (the exchange point for the V=60 km/h flush junction is interchanged), and similarly on the Trieste side at the progressive at km 9+853 of the L.S. Mestre-Latisana (flush junction at V=60 km/h). The main track is double-track in the first section and becomes single-track with a ‘loop’ configuration in the final part to allow for the construction of the ‘through’ airport railway station.

In the open-air section, the track spacing is generally 4.00; at approximately km 4+520 of the BD, the two tracks begin to diverge and consequently the single-tube, double-track tunnel divides into two single-track tunnels, allowing for the creation of the ‘loop’. The underground airport station is located at km 5+053.45 inside the airport area, which consists of 1 running track and 1 overtaking track with a wheelbase of 4.00 m and side platforms with a length of 345.00 m. The new railway link in the uncovered section runs parallel to the Marco Polo Motorway Junction and develops north of it outside its buffer zone. All areas enclosed by the railway and road lines are made accessible by roadways or links in the project works. The design speed of the new line varies from 60 km/h on the exit/entrance of the historical line, to 100 km/h in the uncovered section and then decreases near the airport station to 80 km/h and then 60 km/h.

Sustainability

The Rail Link to Venice Airport is a project that aims to meet environmental standards and reduce water and energy requirements. The proposals are highly sustainable, focussing on maximising the reuse of rainwater, process and sewage water, as well as exploiting the renewable energies considered to be the most efficient among those potentially applicable. Some examples are the management of percolation water from the clay dewatering area, the management of ditching water from under-floor excavations, the monitoring of drains before their discharge into surface water bodies, and the environmental management of waste water from lime treatment and jet grouting operations.
