Rome denies reports of 28 April opening of crucial Metro C station.City authorities have denied that Rome's Metro C station at S. Giovanni will open on 28 April, as reported widely in the Italian media on 4 April, stating however that the station would open "soon".
The station was originally scheduled to open at some stage last autumn but an official launch date was never announced. In February the city said it would open "within two months."
The station is seen as crucial to the capital’s overall underground network as it will connect the driverless 18-km Metro C line with Metro A and the central Termini station.
The ultra-modern S. Giovanni station will display dozens of ancient Roman archaeological finds whose discovery was partially responsible for delaying the troubled Metro C project which has been beset with difficulties since it began in 1990.
