The Italian part of the link extends for a total length of about 95 km, from the Piossasco powr station, in the province of Turin, up to the State border, located inside the Frejus security tunnel. Most of the line extends for approximately 73 km along the A32 motorway which is part of the Frejus Safety Tunnel, 13 km long in total, approximately 6.5 km of which is in Italian territory. The remaining 22 km runs alongside provincial roads (SP 589), municipal roads and agricultural land.

There are numerous artefacts along the route, mostly related to the motorway as well as various galleries, the latter dedicated to the link.
