Central section of Rome's Metro A line to close for works in August.
Rome's Metro A will be closed between Termini and Arco di Travertino from 31 July until 3 September, to facilitate the completion of the Metro C station at S. Giovanni
which is expected to open this autumn.
The seven Metro A stations being closed are Vittorio Emanuele, Manzoni, S. Giovanni, Re di Roma, Ponte Lungo, Furio Camillo and Colli Albani.
During works the MA4 shuttle bus service will cover the route affected by the station closures, and the Metro A line will operate as normal between Termini and Battistini, and between Arco di Travertino and Anagnina.
The announcement on 26 July has attracted the anger of many Roman commuters who claim the city failed to provide adequate notice.
