The interruption and replacement services of the line to Baiano

The railway line for Baiano è completely suspended due to maintenance work extraordinary. An interruption that is already causing significant inconvenience to travelers who use this line. To mitigate the impact, they were made available bus replacement services, but their frequency is much reduced compared to trains and the first problems arose with them right from their debut the buses that stopped during the march.

The problems of the replacement buses for the Baiano line

The suspension of the railway line for Baiano has created considerable inconvenience for over 5000 commuters who use this service on a daily basis. The replacement buses, although numerically adequate with 200 runs every day, are unable to compensate for the efficiency of the train, generating numerous protests and inconveniences.

The main critical issues that emerged:

  • Paths not well defined: Drivers often do not know the route, causing delays and inconveniences.
  • Limited links: The buses do not connect all the internal municipalities, forcing travelers to change vehicles or use the car.
  • Congested traffic: The replacement of trains with buses has increased road traffic, making travel slower and more inconvenient.
  • Accidents: A recent example saw a bus involved in an accident in Baiano, fortunately without injuries.

Temporary solutions such as the connection lines between Scisciano, Saviano and Nola, or between Cimitile, Roccarainola, Cicciano and Nola, have been activated, but cannot completely eliminate the inconveniences.
