Snapshot on the italian network




 

The network lines are classified according to their characteristics:

●  fundamental lines, with  high traffic  density and high-quality infrastructure, including international routes and the axes of connection between the main Italian cities

●  complementary lines, with lower  traffic levels, represent the links of the regional basins and diffusely connect between them the main routes

●  nodes, which develop themselves within large areas of exchange and connection between fundamental and complementary lines in the metropolitan areas
