M2 Lanza station to reopen

Work completed ahead of schedule

Eleven days ahead of schedule, Milan’s M2 green line metro station Lanza will be reopened to the public on Saturday 4 April.

Essential repairs have closed the busy station since 2 January, forcing commuters and residents to find alternative surface transport.

Six escalators have been totally replaced. City transport authority ATM stated that closing only two at a time to keep the station operative would have breached safety regulations about emergency evacuation, while working on only one platform at a time would have doubled the time required, delaying the completion of work until well after the opening of Expo 2015.

ATM has replaced or modernised 31 escalators in 16 metro stations since October 2014. Another 11 passenger escalators will be renewed before the opening of Expo 2015 on 1 May, in Conciliazione, Turro, Gorla, QT8, Bande Nere, Porta Genova and S. Ambrogio stations.
