From Sanpietrini to asphalt. The plan to replace the current road surface in some of the main arteries of the City centre continues and, starting from next week, the construction site from Via Cesare Battisti, next to Piazza Venezia, will proceed towards Largo Magnanapoli. The street works include the removal of flints, the redevelopment of the first layers of road covering until the new asphalt is laid. The Sanpietrini along via IV Novembre will also be temporarily placed in a storage site, an intervention that is being carried out by the Public Works Department. They will then be relocated to other roads of the City centre. Largo Magnanapoli, a junction area between via IV Novembre, via Nazionale and via 24 Maggio, will keep the mantle of Sanpietrini instead. The street works, in this case, will be
aimed at the conservation and redevelopment of the historic flint.
"With the Sanpietrini plan", says the Mayor Raggi, “ for the first time we are enhancing the symbolic stone of Rome. At the end of the street works, it will be even more beautiful to
walk the streets in the city center and admire the beauty of our city for many years".
With the works scheduled from 27 April, the lane from Via Cesare Battisti to Via Nazionale will be closed. This closure will require the diversion of bus lines n. H, 40, 60, 64, 70, 170. Arriving from Piazza Venezia and heading to Via Nazionale, the buses will be diverted to Via del Corso, Largo Chigi, Via and Largo del Tritone, Via del Traforo and Via Milano. A bus stop along via Cesare Battisti and two bus stops in via Nazionale will be deactivated.
