The bridge over the Strait of Messina must be done “without delay”: the Calabrian and Sicilian deputies of the Democratic Party affirm this in a note
The Bridge over the Strait from Messina could be “the symbol” of the rebirth of Italy after the pandemic and, therefore, of the government, “Without hesitation”, “Use” the 50 million allocated in the last budget law “to complete the planning phase in 2021”, “Finance the work in 2022 with the resources of the multi-year investment fund of the budget law for 2022” me “You will achieve it by 2030”. This is what the Calabrian and Sicilian deputies of the Democratic Party declare Enza Bruno Bossio, Chaplains of the Saints, Carmelo Miceli, Pietro Navarra me Fausto Raciti. Therefore, it is evident that the political will to build such an important project for the entire country is now becoming relevant. On Sicily the 5 star movement remains isolated on the subject, in fact, a few days ago the social position that went against the construction of the infrastructure and the president of the Region who is working in favor of it: “What do you think of a president who wants the Bridge over the Strait, but doesn’t care about the scandalous media situation. Perhaps Nello Musumeci has never taken a train in Sicily. When one occurs, it takes a lifetime to cross the island. Anyway, three minutes to enter, but half a day to move “.
“President Mario Draghi – the deputies of the Democratic Party recall in a note – He told the Chambers two days ago that the Minister of Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility will send to Parliament the result of the work of the Commission of experts commissioned by the Hon. Paola De Micheli to evaluate alternative solutions for the stable crossing of the Strait of Messina. Thanks to the work of the representatives of the Democratic Party in the government Conte I, De Micheli and Margiotta, the Ministry has clear ideas about the need to guarantee the stable connection between Sicily and Calabria, but wants to deepen the transport, the economy and Engineering to guarantee the country and Europe the most adequate infrastructure. In compliance with the will of Parliament, expressed in the act of direction to the Government voted by the Chamber of Deputies in October of last year and taken up in the motions promoted by the PD and approved with the agreement of the majority, at the initiative of On De Micheli, then Minister of Infrastructures and Transport, allocated in the budget law the sum of 50 million euros to follow up on the indications of the Committee of experts: to start the possible feasibility study, hold the public debate on the work. and complete the design aspects of the infrastructure that will allow the stable crossing of the Strait of Messina. The Government, without delay, will use these resources now to complete the planning phase for 2021, finance the works in 2022 with the resources of the multi-year investment fund of the Budget Law for 2022 and implement it by 2030. relaunching the country after the pandemic lacks a symbolic project. The stable crossing of the Strait of Messina, which allows Italy to be Europe’s main gateway to and from the Mediterranean – conclude the Democratic parliamentarians – can and must represent that symbol that gives meaning and perspective to the entire recovery program developed in recent days by the Government – such as the completion of the Salerno-Reggio Calabria high-speed train -, combining in the best of cases the objectives of sustainable growth, technological innovation and social cohesion that are at the center of the development policies of the European Union “.
