With the reopening of schools and the return to school of many students, the phase is critical, so it is necessary to improve the road system in the city to avoid traffic situations.

Here is what the Councilor told the Corriere del Mezzogiorno.

The works in Piazza Municipio

Jobs they will continue and will stay construction site opened to extend the tram tracks. In this case, he says, the traffic jams are not due to the construction site, but to the fact that the city is very crowded again with the typical rhythms of the periods before the pandemic.

The enlargement of the construction site in Via Cristoforo Colombo

Has been the construction site was enlarged to build 80 meters of tracks and it was closed the gate which allowed cars heading to Piazza Municipio and coming from via Acton to pass from the sea lane to the buildings side and this situation, according to the Councilor, did not worsen the traffic.

In any case the gate will not be reopened not even after the works. in any case, within 6 months, throughout the area of Piazza Municipio will restore the old traffic with much more smoothness for traffic.

The new circulation in Piazza Municipio

The new circulation expected in about 6 months, and which will be the one that was already active before the construction sites, provides that:

  • la lane in front of the Mercadante you will have to go uphill, the one next to the Maschio Angioino downhill;
  • on sea ​​side lane we will proceed towards the motorways;
  • toheight of the Immacolatella you can turn left and the intersection will be managed by a traffic light;
  • la land side lane, parallel to the Hotel Romeo, will be used for the circulation towards the Galleria della Vittoria. Thus, the long tour through via De Gasperi and via Depretis is eliminated;
  • le central preferential lanes they will be used for trams and other means of public transport;
  • i taxi leaving the Beverello they won't have to do a big tour anymore. Those heading to Chiaia will enter the lane directly towards the tunnel thanks to a cut;
