Metro line 1 will be completely restored by this evening. Giuseppe Sala, mayor of Milan, said this on the sidelines of the third Mobility event organized by the Municipality of Milan at National Museum of Science and Technology regarding last night's accident which blocked the M1 red line in the section from Palestro to Porta Venezia. “He told me now Arrigo Giana – explained the mayor – that they should be able to intervene before tonight's match, (the one between Milan and Borussia Dortmund, ed.) which would be absolutely important.
By late afternoon or evening it should work." Now “they are replacing the pillar – he had said shortly before Ariadne Cense, councilor for mobility speaking with journalists at the same event – waiting to have static compliance, that is, the fact that it holds up and then they will reopen immediately". Censi also declared that "by the evening the situation will be stabilized".
