The ad-hoc Emergency Decree for Genoa law n.130/2018, recently passed by the government and prompted in response to the disruption caused to port operations by the collapse of the Morandi Bridge, gives the final go-ahead to the investment programme presented by the President of the Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority, Paolo Emilio Signorini, and approved by the Reconstruction Commissioner Marco Bucci on 15 January 2019.
The focal point of the investment programme is to improve:
- maritime and road/rail access to the Ports of Genoa
- intermodal connections with the airport
- city-port integration and redevelopment of disused State properties
The projects outlined in the Investment Programme can benefit from the added flexibility offered by the Decree for Genoa in the implementation of the administrative procedures governing the project executions for the reconstruction of the new Bridge, from January 2019 until January 2022.
