The line can carry up to 24,000 passengers per hour, reducing travel times and waiting.

MM oversaw the feasibility study and preliminary design of the entire line, as well as the definitive project for the Garibaldi-San Siro. MM also performed the function of high supervision of the execution of the work done by Metro5.

The line linking Bignami to San Siro for a total of 12.9 km and 19 stations.
