The station, located in the Greater Naples town of Afragola, has been designed to be used by all high-speed trains on the Rome–Naples high-speed line that do not start or finish at Napoli Centrale station but instead operate over the Naples–Salerno high-speed line.
The architect Zaha Hadid formally presented the station's design on 4 November 2003.
The station building was originally meant to be build on a bridge above the tracks and will have four levels with a maximum height of 25 metres (82 ft). It was planned to have an area of 20,000 square metres (220,000 sq ft), with provision for an additional 10,000 square metres (110,000 sq ft)
The station was due to be open in 2009 when the rail network operator, Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI) first awarded the €59.5 million construction contract to a consortium, but subsequent disputes over the price caused RFI to call tenders again and construction is currently on hold.
