Milan metro station closed for repairs
Lanza station on Milan’s M2 (green) metro line, located at a stone’s throw from the Castello and in a busy office district, will have to be closed until 15 April for the installation of new escalators.
Until these are up and running, M2 trains will skip this station, halting instead at those just before and after it: Cadorna and Moscova. Passengers will then have to change onto surface transport: from Moscova station to Lanza they can use bus routes 2, 4, 12, 14 or 57, and from Lanza to Cadorna station route 61. In the opposite direction, to reach Lanza from Cadorna, they can take the M1 (red) line to Cairoli and then surface routes 4 and 57.
This interruption is necessary to substitute six escalators on the station’s two platforms in time for the opening of Expo 2015.
ATM says that staff will work without pause to complete the work on time. It points out that 10 new escalators have already been installed since October in metro stations Cadorna M2, S. Babila, Pasteur, Buonarroti and Palestro.
Improvements are currently also being carried out in the stations of Sesto Marelli, Villa S. Giovanni, Gorla, Turro, Rovereto, Conciliazione, QT8, Bande Nere, Porta Genova, S. Agostino and S. Ambrogio, without closures being necessary.
