Salvini: “We are working hard for Calabria. Now there is a project for high speed up to Reggio”

«With Calabria and for Calabria we are working hard», explained Matteo Salvini, citing the Strait Bridge in which «we invested 30 billion in Calabria and the same in Sicily. The bridge is a connecting link.” The minister then listed “the interventions on the Statale 106, the 3 billion for the Sibari-Crotone-Catanzaro with the tender soon to start”, and again “521 million for the Trasversale delle Serre and the safety of the last stretch of the A2 between Cosenza and Altilia”. Salvini then recalled the investments on the Ionian state road 106 from south to north and I am thinking of the Reggio section. When I arrived there was no high speed planning until Reggio Calabria, now it is being planned. The projects are the result of technical, infrastructural and non-political choices. I want to reach the end of my mandate with a more modern, safer, more infrastructured Calabria.” Finally, the chapter relating to the Port of Gioia Tauro which must be “defended”. «The next infrastructure to be analyzed – concluded the Minister of Infrastructure – I plan to give answers soon, it can be the reference port not only for the Mediterranean».
