Renovation of sidewalks and guard-rail planned Work to renew sidewalks and restore the deteriorated guard-rail along Via Cassia, between Via Vilfredo Pareto and Via Oriolo Romano, will begin on Friday, Feb. 24. The worksite is part of the extraordinary maintenance roadworks and will be carried out by the Csimu Department of Roma Capitale. The work is expected to be completed by the end of March. "Safety is one of the goals we set with Mayor Gualtieri, safeguarding those who travel our streets is a central issue. The resurfacing of the sidewalks and guard-rail aims precisely to allow risk-free passage on a busy street. This intervention joins the new 715 illuminated crosswalks and the great roads plan, which has brought us more than 200 kilometers of major roads upgraded in one year and 3 months, to make Rome's streets safe," says Roma Capitale Public Works Councillor Ornella Segnalini. "With the launch of these interventions we continue to work for our territory and for road safety: a priority for this administration. A complex work, and always coordinated with the Department of Public Works, Csimu and our Local Police whom I thank. With these worksites we intervene, after years, on a central area of our Municipality, strategic for the road system, part of a larger program that also affects more peripheral areas of North Rome," added Municipality XV President Daniele Torquati. The works will affect the deteriorated sections between via Pareto and via D'Ampezzo, via Oriolo Romano and via Val Gardena, and via Cassia in the direction of via Oriolo Romano. The section of Cassia affected by the works was the focus of a complete restyling carried out by Csimu that ended last December and involved the 3-kilometer-long arterial oad from Ponte Milvio to via Oriolo Romano.
