Abstract

Since 1839, when the historical railway Naples - Portici was inaugurated, Naples has been characterized by a significant system of urban and suburban railways. The idea of a fully integrated urban rail network dates back to the 1950s, but construction only began in the 1990s. At present, the system includes 54 km of tracks and 69 stations in operation; ten lines with 93 km of track and a further 30 km of new light rail linking 114 stations with 21 interchanges are planned with the completion of the City Transport Plan. The present paper reports on some geotechnical aspects of the design and construction of Lines 1 and 6, which are presently under way, discussing how the experience gathered during construction of Line 1 influenced some of the design choices for Line 6. © 2012 Ernst & Sohn Verlag für Architektur und technische Wissenschaften GmbH & Co.
