Green line to stop earlier on weekday evenings.
Eleven stations on Milan’s M2 green metro line will be closed late evenings Monday to Friday for two separate periods, starting 18 February, while overhead power lines are being replaced.
Metro traffic will be suspended and replaced by a bus service between Cascina Gobba and the northern M2 terminus at Gessate. The last northbound train from Cascina Gobba will depart at 22.34, and the last southbound from Gessate will leave at 22.32.
The two periods are from Monday 18 February to Friday 5 April, and then again from Monday 6 May to Friday 7 June. Trains will however run regularly until the end of service on weekends and on public holidays, promises Milan urban transport authority ATM.
Unfortunately, warns ATM, the bus stops will not in every case be exactly outside the stations, as the street layout is not suitable everywhere for manoeuvring the buses. The bus stops will be next to the stations of Cascina Gobba, Cascina Burrona, Villa Fiorita, Gorgonzola (for southbound passengers only) and Gessate.
At all the other stations involved in the work, signposts on the spot will help passengers find the bus stops. Details are also on the ATM website.
