Rome-Naples high-speed trains delayed due to cable theft


Naples, January 25 - There were disruptions to rail
services in the southern Campania region on Friday following the
theft of copper cable in Casoria near Naples along the
Rome-Salerno high-speed train line.
All trains have had to be rerouted along the conventional
line between Naples and Gricignano to the north, adding 10-25
minutes to journey time.
Technicians were at work to repair the damage but said it
would take a long time to restore normal services.
Last year in the Campania region alone there were 162
reported incidents of copper-cable theft along the Rome-Naples
section of the national high-speed rail network, causing 700,000
euros of direct damage and 126 hours of delays.
Cable theft is a regular phenomenon in recession-hit Italy
as rises in the price of copper and other metals fuel the
illicit market.
