In the south-west of the city, roadwork continues to upgrade the central lanes of Via Cristoforo Colombo, thanks to a contract for extraordinary maintenance worth 3.6 million euros. This was announced in a post on Facebook by the city councillor for infrastructure Linda Meleo. "The interventions - she explains - coordinated by the Department of Public Works, are carried out at night so as not to cause inconvenience to the local road system and agreed with the local police to close the affected sections to traffic.
We are working on upgrading the road surface damaged by tree roots on the entire 16 kilometre stretch between Via Pontina and Piazzale Cristoforo Colombo". According to Meleo, the roadwork will allow the asphalt to be renewed, as well as the horizontal and vertical road signs, even near the crossroads and in particular on Via di Acilia, Via Pindaro, Via di Casal Palocco and Via Canale della Lingua.
Remaining in the coastal area, roadwork also continues on the redevelopment of the bike lane on the Ostia seafront, in the Municipality X, from Piazza Giuliano da Sangallo to the port. This was announced by Mayor Virginia Raggi in a post on her Facebook page. "This track - explains the first citizen of the Capital - was built by previous administrations, cutting the pavement, making it narrower and thus causing inconvenience to citizens. That's why we have already allocated funds for a subsequent intervention, from Piazza Giuliano da Sangallo to Piazza Scipione l'Africano, to upgrade and widen the pavement" - concludes Raggi. The aim is to allow everyone to use the bike lane for a nice walk in the open air, avoiding the use of the car, especially for short trips.
