The premium night closings will start today, Monday 29 June, and will continue until 3 July. In all they are 16 the galleries to be inspected in this first phase: those considered to be highest priority, on which in-depth checks that have never been carried out are necessary. Then, by the 10th of July, all checks on the must be completed 147 galleries and must be guaranteed at least two lanes open across the network. These are the map and roadmap agreed by Ministry of Transport e Autostrade per l’Italia to complete the works in Liguria. A plan agreed on Sunday in extremis to avoid the risk of a total block of regional motorway traffic, but which still infuriates the President of Liguria, Giovanni Toti. The governor announced ordinance which asks Mit and Aspi to prepare within three days a new plan on highway works: “We did everything in our power to try and mitigate the inconvenience that there are, “explained Toti, speaking of a” situation unsustainable“And” a damage gigantic ”for the economy.
The agreement reached yesterday between the ministry and the Autostrade company had the aim of avoiding one daytime closing give her A26. Furthermore, the dealership has obtained the go-ahead to modify the control procedure: for the tunnels already inspected, the procedure will be carried out indirect instrumental checks which will allow you to acquire knowledge about the state of safety, while still ensuring the transit of cars. This does not mean that for Ligurian tourists and commuters i problems are finished: first, i will continue works on the network, which should start from July 3 get to guarantee in a week at least two free lanes for the passage of vehicles. And then there is theunknown on controls: if the nocturnal checks were to reveal some risks for safety, the closure of the motorway section would come prolonged beyond 6 in the morning, among other things without the possibility of notice.
As reported on the website of the Ministry of Transport, the control activities concern overall 147 galleries. The newspaper The print shows in detail what the first 16 galleries subjected to checks already in the next four nights, those included precisely between 29 June and 3 July. Seven are on A26 (between Voltri and Gravellona), as many are on the A12 (between Genoa and Rosignano), while two are located on the A10 (between the capital and Ventimiglia). In these sections night closing will therefore be arranged, starting from 22 of the will be until to 6 in the morning. The before tonight will be right on the A26, he writes The print, between Ovada and the junction with the A10.
In detail, subsequent closings have yet to be defined by prefectures, regions and municipalities. In the meantime, however, Toti’s reply has arrived, with the ordinance asking to “prepare immediately and in any case no later than three days from the publication of this ordinance a maintenance plan of the Ligurian motorway infrastructure which reconciles the primary traffic safety requirements with the fundamental right a mobility“. For the Ligurian governor “the situation remains unsustainable“. “We can’t fix the galleriand all together – he added – because this involves a risk for those who move and therefore damage, the lack of mobility of citizens and therefore the damage to constitutional rights and a gigantic damage to freedom economic of enterprise in our territory, as well as a disparity of treatment between businesses and citizens of Liguria and those of other territories “.
