The intervention aims at the arrangement of the road pavement reserved for vehicular traffic and that on the edge of the roadway, the reconstruction of deteriorated sidewalks, an adequate rationalization of sub-services and the restoration of the guardrails largely dating back to the ‘ 70 of the last century.

“After decades of neglect – said the mayor Except Pogliese – we are solving, also thanks to the synergy with the regional government and the fruitful confrontation with trade unions and employers, the structural problems of an area that produces 15% of the Sicilian GDP, where other important investments are being developed such as gigafactory
of Enel Green Power and another industrial giant that we hope to announce soon the signing of its development plan in our Industrial Area, with what follows in terms of induced activities, including employment, for Catania and the south east of Sicily “.
