Rome's Spagna metro station reopens

Rome metro stations at Repubblica and Barberini remain closed.

The Spagna station on Rome's Metro A line reopened on the evening of 7 May after Italy's transport ministry gave its escalator system the green light.

The central Rome metro station was closed on 23 March to allow technicians to undertake checks on its escalators.

The decision to shut Spagna was taken because its escalators are of the same type as Barberini station whose escalator system collapsed on 21 March.

Barberini station remains closed as does Repubblica which has been shut since 23 October when dozens of people were injured after the escalator accelerated suddenly.
