Metro only a short distance from Monza, presentation of Bettola mega hub

The M1 lines will pass here with the new Monza-Bettola terminal and the future M5. Car parks, a shopping arcade, a multi-screen cinema and a planetarium.

A new modern “citadel”, just outside Monza, where the M1 line and the future M5 underground line will pass, with a new maxi car park, cultural activities, shops and an even larger shopping mall. CiniselloHub has been officially presented and the new urban regeneration project also involving, among the various operators, the Municipalities of Monza and Milan, the Lombardy Region, the Metropolitan City, MM spa and the various motorway management bodies, is quickly taking shape. The 3D rendering of the future appearance of the area at the gates of the capital of Brianza, where the lilac line of the underground to Monza will also pass, was presented at Palazzo Pertini where it will be on display until 22 April thanks to an installation.


Besides the transport interchange serving the M1 and future M5 terminal, with an area able to accommodate 2,500 cars, a new public mobility square will take shape with an 18-line bus station and a bicycle station complete with a bicycle workshop. The Auchan shopping centre will be even larger and more modern thanks to a new multi-level arcade, for accessing the metro station, compete with cafés, restaurants and cultural, meeting and entertainment facilities, including a multiplex and a planetarium. Thanks to the project, about one thousand new jobs will be created and hiring plans will privilege residents of northern Milan. In addition to the construction of a business centre, a new green model will take shape for the enhancement of green areas with an investment of 16 million euros to be allocated to the acquisition by the municipal administration of new currently private areas in the Grugnotorto Park to be linked to the Hub by a 4.5 kilometre bike path. “This is a unique opportunity to redevelop and relaunch an area which is strategic for the whole of North Milan. This will be one of the fulcrums of the mobility networks of our region, the new strategic transport interchange for the M1 and M5 lines, integrated with public transport lines by road, the bicycle network, a parking lot for cars, which will also have an impact on employment in our area, creating more than 1000 jobs,” said the mayor of Cinisello Balsamo, Siria Trezzi.
