The project intends to test the potentials in developing a “widespread railway network” in the Trentino territory – and in particular in that part of the valleys that includes Giudicarie, Altogarda and val Lagarina, in order to provide opportunities for a safe and sustainable mobility, alternative to road transport.
Metroland is seen as an opportunity to put in a network MOBILITY, ECONOMY, ECOLOGY, CULTURE, to enhance the competitiveness and liveability of the territories, to activate economic and cultural values of the area and encourage the tourist use, to attract international traffic flows while integrating with local and sustainable transport networks.
Landscape is considered the most valuable and attractive resource of Trentino.
The infrastructural intervention, impacting on an area so delicate and so complex in morphology, pursues the least environmental impact. The suggested route is so located primarily in natural tunnel, to limit as much as possible the direct impact on the territory.
Also the number of the stations is limited, to ensure a greater rapidity of the connections, through the identification of the nodal points in the valleys as hub of the local mobility.
In these nodes, the infrastructure adapts to the signs of the landscape and enhances its characters, creating effective synergies.
