The entire road network of Genoa went haywire today, 3 July with mileage queues due to the unexpected extension of the closure of a section of the A10 Genova-Savona. The planned inspection of a tunnel (la Borgonovo) by Autostrade per l’Italia continued beyond the early hours of dawn and the section was only reopened at 10 am.
In the meantime, twelve kilometers of tail on the A10 between the A26 junction and Arenzano, 6 kilometers between Masone and the A26-A10 Genova-Ventimiglia junction have been created. And the traffic spilled over into ordinary roads, thus creating one of the worst traffic jams that can be remembered since the collapse of the Morandi – if not worse – with 20 kilometers on the Aurelia from Sampierdarena to Arenzano.
The Guido Rossa, the main road for transport to the port, was also paralyzed. In the coming days, Autostrade per l’Italia warned, in other tunnels of the Ligurian network the activity will have a “particular intensity”: “To meet the deadline of 10 July indicated by the MIT”, in short, new traffic jams are expected after the great funnel seen today in the Genoese knot.

Toti, be wary of MIT and exposed

In the evening the announcement by Governor Toti of a series of actions: an exposed-complaint sent to the Prosecutor’s Office, a warning to MIT and an agenda to be brought to the Regions Conference, which then renewed the invitation to MIT to prepare ” a new plan ”of checks in the tunnels. “At the moment there is no response nod – Toti said -. We have sent a warning for the MIT to sit around a table within 7 days to quantify the damage suffered by Liguria. Otherwise we will act through legal channels “.

Highways: ok from Saturday 4 July with total exemption on 150 km of network

From Saturday 4 July, Autostrade per l’Italia will make additional sections of the network managed in Liguria free of charge. Altogether around 150 kilometers of network will be free. This was communicated by a company note motivating the decision with “the significant inconvenience on the Ligurian sections generated by the concentration of inspection and maintenance of the tunnels, necessary to comply with the MIT requirements of the end of May. The further exemption will concern the following connections: sections of the A12 and A7 from Lavagna to Genova Ovest to Vignole Borbera; stretch of the A10 from Varazze to Genoa Airport; section of the A26 from Ovada to the connection with the A10. “The exemptions – adds Aspi’s note – will remain in force as long as conditions of significant discomfort remain on the Ligurian network due to the ministerial prescriptions to which Aspi must comply”.

Traffic jams and queues from early June

In the Ligurian motorways, traffic jams are on the agenda practically from the beginning of June with the resumption of travel between the regions. At the end of May – always open the dispute over the revocation of the concession after the collapse of the Morandi – the MIT has given new provisions on inspections in the tunnels and Aspi has opened dozens of construction sites in Liguria, which often involve changes of roadway, and sections closed the night and in which during the day you travel on one roadway to allow inspections on the other. Local institutions have repeatedly complained about the failure to coordinate the work, despite the frequent ‘tables’ convened by MIT with Aspi (only on Wednesday was the one with the mayors of Anci Liguria).

The global shipping giant Cosco intervened in all this and today warned its customers of this “chaos never seen”, advising against using the port of Genoa for shipments, inviting to turn to alternative ports such as La Spezia, Ravenna, Trieste, Venice. “The alarm level is maximum, the situation escaped the MIT due to the disarming inability to plan and Aspi is responsible for the neglect of the network that has been going on for years,” commented the director of Spediporto Giampaolo Botta. The association of port terminal operators belonging to Confindustria, Assiterminal, has announced that a possible legal action is under consideration “in the form of class action or damage request to Autostrade”, but also to others, explained the president Luca Becce. “Liguria Region and the mayor of Genoa Marco Bucci do everything to open at least the two lanes on the Ligurian highways, we hope that the Government will listen to them”, commented Aldo Spinelli, founder of the homonymous logistics group. “Today the first port in the Mediterranean has been closed,” his summary. The president of the port of Genoa Paolo Emilio Signorini has said however “moderately optimistic” on a solution, while the harbor workers have announced shortly a great mobilization to be felt by the institutions
