New M4 Metro Line to Linate to be Inaugurated
Milan, June 8, 2021– A ribbon cutting ceremony has inaugurated the new boarding area of Linate airport and the new Milano metro line M4 leading to Linate Airport is almost complete. This is great news for frequent travelers to Milan and international commuters.
The new improvements to the Linate Airport located only 15 minutes from the Milan city center will improve transit and travel to Milan.
ON the new metro line, there have been some delays on completing the section between Linate and San Babilia but initial test runs are due to begin in July. Full completion and operation is set for the end of 2022.
Giuseppe Sala, the mayor of Milan has announced that sections of the new M4 will start opening soon and he has promised that it will be done with caution saying, “Making it work for the sake of making it work I believe is doing harm to citizenship. Having said that, I really care and I believe that by July we will take a test trip to show what the subway is like. The next step will then be to think about the other sections, in particular the arrival to San Babila, scheduled for the end of 2022, is important to me. ”
