"Mezzo" in Italian means both "half" and "means" as in "means of transportation".

TIR is an acronym for "Transports Internationaux Routiers" which means "International Road Transports". It is a convention for international and often long distance road transport, now obsolete in the EU.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TIR_Convention

In Italian and French is often used as a sinonym for "semitrailer truck", as most trucks carrying the TIR logo were (are) semitralers.

So the text means that 1/4 of vehicles are freight vehicles.

The use of 'TIR' is still pretty widespread in central / eastern Europe, even though most trucks don't require a TIR carnet anymore.

Bad news from Sicily again.

Viaduct "Cinque Archi" on A19 near Caltanissetta had been closed and seized by Carabinieri for investigation, as pillars are in very bad conditions causing structural dangers. It's few kilometers away from viaduct "Himera", that collapsed last April. Now traffic has to use the other carriaggeway in both directions.

This viaduct had been kept in operation with a single lane for many years till now, as structural problems were already known, but nobody tried to do anything to solve the problem.
https://www.google.it/maps/place/930...2c237f!6m1!1e1

This is the result of decades of no maintenance.

I think you are talking about two different viaducts. The one operated with one lane only since many years is the Cannatello, because the concrete is degrading due to low maintenance, but it's still open. The "Cinque Archi" has been closed because pylons have been eroded by the waters of Salso river.

Sorry, I though it was the same as they are quite nearby. Google Maps doesn't show the name of viaducts, but only the motorway number.

That's even worse, as it means that the whole A19 or at least a long part of it is suffering serious structural problems, and it's not only a viaduct.

A hypotetical extension of A31 towards Trento will include two very long double-tube tunnels, according to the current project: 15,1 and 6,3 km. I guess it will remain just a project for very long time.

Works ongoing on lot B1 of A36 Lomazzo (A9) - Lentate sul Seveso (SS35)
This part should open by the end of this year, although nobody knows when.
Works for B2 lot (upgrade of SS35 to motorway standards) should start in early 2016. This will be the most complicate part, due to the need of working without disrupting traffic on SS35. It will probably take long (5+ years).

Traffic on A35 increased of 35% after the opening of A58, that connects A35 ith A1 and A4, so opening of rest areas will be profitable. They plan to open the first ones in spring 2016. They plan to connect A35 directly with A4 in Brescia by 2017, and this will also increase traffic.

That means, this announcement from January is out-dated:

1st July was the official date set months ago. But SSC users living nearby (I don't) are reguarily following the roadworks and they are well behind the schedule.
Pics I quoted were taken on 1st June, so it's clear it won't be open in a month.

Of course, I just want to show that it's delayed and that even official announcements (of politicians and authorities) are often worthless lines.

Yes, I never consider seriously scheduled opening dates in Italy, unless actual works are almost completed. It's common to set very ambitious opening dates that will be delayed 5 times. It's a good news when the actual opening happens less than a year after the first proposed date.

Don't worry, it's usually the same in Germany...

Anyway, I tried to figure out anything about other updates on estimated June openings but... Are these announcements still up-to-date?

SS640: Agrigento – Canicatti 8km (March 2009 to June 2015) – projectmap
SS106: Roccella Jonica-Canne – Gioiosa-East 8km (? to June 2015) – projectmap
SS106: Gioiosa-East – Gioiosa Jonica 3.5km (September 2011 to June 2015) – projectmap
A31: Agugliaro – Noventa Vicentina 6km (September 2005 to July 2015) – projectmap

Finally an honnest guy... It's not only Italy . Also in switzerland we have this problem... Other discussion, I hurt that in spain a lot of motorway are in bankrupt, nobody use those motorway in middle of nothing. Italy is more populate than Spain, so maybe it will never hapend. But do you think it could be hapen with the BRBEMI? Journalist complains that they are not enough cars, is it still the case with now the TEEM open?
