Genoa, 9 March 2023
As of today, a new infopoint dedicated to the Terzo Valico and Genoa Junction Project can be found in the atrium of the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa.
The project is part of the broader “Cantieri Parlanti” project: an initiative conceived and implemented by FS Italiane Group with the companies of the Infrastructure Hub, Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, and Italferr, together with Webuild, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, and the Government’s Special Commissioner. The aim of the initiative is to provide clear and transparent information and communication about the strategic projects funded by the PNRR (National Recovery and Resilience Plan).
The installation in Genoa is the first of a series, and will be followed by others, which will be located at other major train stations, work sites, and institutional headquarters throughout Italy where the railway projects are underway.
The infopoint consists of a temporary structure, with panels illustrating the route of the project, its technical characteristics, updated data on the progress of the work activities, the environmental protection aspects, and the social and economic impacts on people and the surrounding territories. An area open to the public that guarantees maximum visibility for all those who visit Palazzo Ducale, and anyone who wants to learn more about one of the largest national construction projects currently under way in the Liguria and Piedmont regions.
The Terzo Valico and Genoa Junction Project is a new High Speed and High Capacity railway line that will improve the Ligurian port system’s links with the main railway lines in Northern Italy, and with the rest of Europe.
The intervention is being carried out by Webuild, on behalf of Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, with the support of the engineering company Italferr, with over 50 construction sites and 5,000 people involved, and constitutes the first part of the TEN-T Reno – Alpi Corridor, which will significantly improve rail freight transport between Italy and the rest of Europe. It will also streamline the flow of regional and long-distance trains in the Genoa area, and will drastically reduce travel times between the Ligurian capital and Milan and Turin.
FS Group’s transparency campaign thus continues to give a voice to its construction sites, by sharing information about the activities in progress, the advantages that the projects will bring, and the possible solutions to any critical issues that may arise. The established methods and time frames for all the projects envisaged by the PNRR can also be seen on the homepage of the FS Group website, where an entire section dedicated to the strategic projects activities has been created, with transparent updates on the progress of the activities being provided in real time through the webcams located at the work sites themselves.
