Italian urban transport funding allocated

first_imgITALY: The Ministry of Infrastructure & Transport has allocated a total of €1·4bn to urban transport projects throughout the country. Roma is the largest recipient, with a total of €425·5m. The larger part of this, €291·1m, would be spent on upgrading metro lines A and B, including the power supply and safety systems. Tunnels will also be refurbished, with extensive work to take place on the Anagnina – Ottaviano section of Line A, which will also have its control centre modernised and rolling stock overhauled. The remaining €134·4m is to be spent on the purchase of 12 trainsets for Line B and two for Line A. Milano receives €396·2m, which augments the €285·2m already in place for several projects. €180m is allocated for resignalling and fire safety improvements on metro Line M2. A further €103·5m is going towards the construction of Line M4. The allocation of €90m towards the purchase of 50 bidirectional trams takes the available funds for the procurement to €150m. A further €8·8m has been earmarked for the first phase of upgrading the Milano – Limbiate interurban tram line, in addition to the €89·1m already in place; the ministry allocated €40m towards the second phase earlier this year. Milano also receives €12·8m towards the construction of separate lanes for trolleybus routes 90 and 91. A further €148·1m has been made available for the western extension of the Torino metro to Casciine Vica, taking the central government’s contribution to €271·8m. Torino is also receiving €75m for the purchase of new trams. The €137·8m contribution to Genova is to be put towards the purchase of 11 metro trainsets and one-station extensions at both ends of the line, to Canepari in the northwest and to Martinez in the east. The ministry is granting €59·5m towards the purchase of 17 two-car trainsets for the Catania metro. The purchase had been approved by the Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning in December, before full funding was in place. A separate procurement of 10 trainsets is being financed from EU funds, and the government had previously allocated €9·9m for the refurbishment of the existing fleet. Padova is to develop a new rubber-tyred tram route between the railway station and Voltabarozzo in the southeast with the aid of €56m. Meanwhile Firenze has €47m of government money for construction of tram line T4. Reggio Calabria is receiving €23m to modernise the Reggio Calabria Centrale – Melito section of its suburban railway line, which is branded as a metro. The project includes building three stations. The ministry is funding trolleybus purchases in Vicenza (€19m) and Rimini (€8·9m). It is also putting forward €1·46m, which was missing from the €14·6m needed to enlarge the Piscinola depot on Napoli metro Line 1.last_img read more

Neymar not going anywhere, says player’s father

Powered by Firework Neymar’s transfer of 222 Million Euros from Barcelona to PSG was the most expensive of its time but the move wasn’t the kind of paradise that is expected at that price. With media fueling regular speculations and the player’s own disinterest, it mostly seemed that the Brazilian wanted a way out.Advertisement However, Neymar Senior, the player’s father spoke to RMC Sport to clear up the fact that Neymar is here to stay in Paris and the fans can rest assured.Advertisement “The contract is long with PSG.“We are only in the second season and it is not even over yet. We have a contract we are not even halfway through.Advertisement “These rumours of departure will always exist, we cannot have a player like Neymar without clubs dreaming about him.”He added: “Neymar’s desire to be at PSG was expressed two years ago, so the fans can sleep easy.“Today Neymar does not want to leave PSG, he wants to continue to help the club win titles.”Neymar does boast 48 goals in just 53 appearances for PSG and this excellent record with the capital club could increase along with the trophy count , given the form PSG are in lately.
