The project is to enable operation of frequent suburban services across the city from Taormina (at North) to Letini (at south) via Catania Centrale. Of the intended three stations Ognina & Europa are already open, while Picanello is to open later.
At the second phase the line would be modernized between Catania Centale & Bicocca and include construction of a new station at Fontanarossa to serve the Airport.
