Hey brick, are these elevators for maintenance workers or for the public?

Imagine the revenue from tourist wanting to see the view from the top! They should design an observation deck into it now.

Certainly, for maintenance. But it is possible to be used by visitors.

However, tourists can enjoy the spectacle of the bridge through all the structures that will be made ​​mainly in Calabria, where the hotels are also planned, squares, restaurants, info point, green spaces and a shopping center.

This a great project. It goes to show that it just isnt a bridge but so much more for the area.

How is the project progressing with all the financial strife in Eurozone? Has it still got funding?

No.
It isn't in the plans of the EU and even
the new Italian government has cut the bridge out.

Works at Cannitello, so far, are nothing else than simply moving 900m of tracks,
something that in other countries would have taken only few months here isn't finished even after over a year.

The payout to Impregilo would be the less painfull solution for all this mess.

If the bridge is not done you will have to pay penalties amounting to 8-10% of the total cost of the work.

As Cannitello, we have no recent news. The work should have been concluded in December but still works. It must be said that there was a stop of work caused by some kind of application that has stopped work for several months.
However, approaching the end.

Why not a floating bridge?
Would that not be simpler and cheaper? And as effective?

That would mean closing/blocking the Messina Strait, one of the major shipping routes in Italy
and with Gioia Tauro's port (5th cargo port in Italy) only few kilometers up the road I don't think your suggestion would be welcommed.

Personally ...I like your idea

Ciaccia
"Bridge over the Strait
early decision '



Rome - On the bridge over the Straits of Messina, "we hope to make a decision within a month." He said the deputy minister for Infrastructure, Mario Ciaccia, speaking at a conference on infrastructure organized by the Einaudi Foundation. "We must take account of the priorities within the framework of priorities," Ciaccia said, explaining that at the time, the priorities set by the European Union "are the corridors." For this, he reiterated Ciaccia, regarding the bridge over the Strait, "there is a problem of resources, since there is currently no EU financial assistance."

Strait Bridge, Ciucci: "I submit to the government's decision"

February 15, 2012


"I have the job of the Bridge. I defer to what the government decides, of course I would be more 'glad you did. "And 'what was said at the company' Strait of Messina, Pietro Ciucci, reporters who asked him news of the latest developments of the infrastructure between Sicily and Calabria on the sidelines of a meeting of the Einaudi Foundation. "The project is following its normal procedure continued Ciucci-we-already 'had a favorable Street on the preliminary draft. At this point it makes an assessment of compliance with regard to the project is not modified. And there 'where we did work on improving change on the ground, required primarily by local authorities, in that case an additional assessment is made. "Pacifiers also recalled that the company '"has already' invested 300 million euros."

The current situation is that we wait for the final OK from the CIPE (Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning).

As said Ciucci (Straits of Messina S.pA.) in recent days, the final decision belongs to the Government. The work is extraordinary and feasible.

I can't tell with certainty if the government gives the OK, but hopes are good. Given the employment crisis, with the bridge would create about 40,000 jobs.
(for the variant of Cannitello were used 300 workers)

Waiting for...
