The projects are located on the section between Naples and Cancello, which will allow the tracks of the line to be brought to service the new Naples-Afragola station, which in the future will become the station for passenger interchange between regional and high-speed services.

The work consists of three arched bridges with a length of 80 metres each, a width of 12 metres and a maximum height of 22 metres, and a 56 m overpass, which are assembled on the ground and launched by SPMT. These structures are preliminary to the upgrading and development of the Naples-Bari railway line, which is part of Corridor 5 Scandinavia-Mediterranean Trans European Network (TEN), which aims to improve the competitiveness of rail transport and the integration of the South-East rail network with the HS/HC system, as well as to increase the share of rail freight transport.
