The Autostrada Ferroviaria Alpina (The Alpine Railway Highway) Project on the AITON {CHAMBERY) -ORBASSANO (TURIN) section was born in 2003 following a series of bilateral meetings between the governments of ltaly and France with the aim of finding safer transport solutions, especially for dangerous goods, and for the 44 T transit prohibited in the Frejus road tunnel.

The Alpine Railway Highway is a unique railway service. lt is a short-distance service capable of transporting semi­trailers across the Alps, with a high degree of efficiency. In fact, Modalhor wagons optimise the train length and capacity, allowing loading up to 4 m and guaranteeing the maximum productivity of the Loading and unloading phases carried out in parallel thanks to the rotating tanks. The railway solution is designed to maximise the safety and sustainability of transalpine transport.
