Naples-Bari railway line Cancello-Frasso
Among the strategic interventions envisaged by the Sblocca Italia Law 2014, the new Cancello-Frasso Telesino section of the new AV/AC Naples-Bari route represents a significant opportunity to strengthen the national infrastructural network and permanently link to the major European logistics circuits.
Banned by Italferr, an engineering company of the Fs Italiane Group, on behalf of Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, the tender was assigned to the Constituing Ordinary Consortium of competitors formed by Impresa Pizzarotti & C. S.p.A., Itinera S.p.A. and Ghella S.p.A., for a total value of 312 million Euros. The intervention involves the speeding up and doubling of the existing historical line, proceeding part by side with respect to the same, part in variant. The total length of the track will be approximately equal to 16 km, the design speed to 180 km / h and the maximum slope of 13 per thousand. There will also be two new stops (Valle di Maddaloni and Dugenta – Frasso Telesino) serving the Casertano’s areas, in order to have a direct connection to Naples, Bari and Benevento.
To better manage the complexity of the required interventions, BIMon, the REACT partner company, has created a BIM model during the tender phase to ensure greater solidity of the offer, provide a standardized working methodology and analyze critical issues, from the design and construction point of view.
Configuring itself as a connecting element between the companies and the design companies involved, the BIM model of the entire route worked as a real container of information, allowing to exchange a very large amount of inputs and outputs that proved to be crucial for the progress of the project. Through the model it was possible to verify the technical feasibility of the design choices undertaken and to simulate the different construction phases. Then, where necessary, the improvements were made to develop an integrated, verified and optimized project from the point of view of time and costs. Finally, the activity of BIM Management proved to be fundamental for the resolution of interference, the drafting of technical documents useful for the tender service.
