Railway allocates funding of Campo Marzio in the Port of Trieste

TRIESTE - The Cipe (Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning) will soon receive the request for co-financing the plan concerning the strengthening of the port of call of Campo Marzio, an infrastructure at the service of the Port of Trieste.

The news was made known today by the Italian region Friuli Venezia Giulia during a meeting in Rome between the President of the same region, Debora Serracchiani and the Managing Director of the Italian State Railways, Michele Mario Elia. Both reconfirmed the strategic value of the works, for which Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), company of the Italian State Railways group, has already allocated 28 million euros in the programme contract. It was also explained that some more details will be given concerning the plan already sent to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport (MIT), so that it would be possible to present it at the next Cipe meeting. In that occasion, further 22 million euros will be demanded in order to complete the strengthening of Campo Marzio. On the other hand, the speeding up of the existing railway line Trieste-Venice has come to the preliminary design stage. An investment of 1.8 million euros, shared by both Italian regions, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto, will permit to reduce the transit time to one hour, awaiting the realisation of the High-speed rail.
