ShareJuly 03, 2020 The entire road system of Genoa went haywire this morning with kilometers of queues due to the unexpected extension of the closure of the section of the A10 between the connection with the A26 and Arenzano, towards Savona. There have been 20 kilometers of queue in the city from Sampierdarena to Arenzano. Subsequently the section was reopened
"Another morning of madness on the highways of Liguria". So on Facebook the Ligurian governor Giovanni Toti about the long queues formed in the morning, between construction sites and "a night inspection did not respect the reopening times" on the A10, between the connection with the A26 and Arenzano.
"Not a line from the Ministry of Transport to answer our requests. Not even one. Besides incompetence, it is about rudeness and disrespect for the thousands of people trapped on the highways. The arrogance and inability of a minister and of a government had never gone so far. These choices ", Toti says," are destroying our economy and putting people's health and lives at risk, as the leaders of our 118 wrote yesterday, who see their ambulances nailed in traffic with the sick on board. I repeat: not even two lines from the Ministry of Transport! This is the loyal collaboration envisaged by our Constitution! ".
On the chaos of highways in Genoa, the Undersecretary for Transport Roberto Traversi tells Radio Cusano Campus: "The situation is intolerable, since the fall of the Ponte Morandi. Since that day there has obviously been an investigation by the public prosecutor's office and a whole series of investigations has went to dig and found a bit of everything, especially the confirmation of the lack of maintenance and also the question of false reports regarding the tunnels emerged. This led slowly to the current situation. This investigation now leads to having a verification different from that which was done before, because before Aspi did the verifications, now it is no longer so. Now every tunnel must be endorsed, precise investigations are made and this work must be done with extreme urgency. It is proceeding in the name of security as far as the Ministry is concerned. These checks are done in a 1967 circular. We have to improve all these things because perhaps with more modern systems would have first. Obviously this is the situation we found ourselves in. There is all the policy to be put on trial, as well as those who have not done the maintenance ".
