The government has confirmed the allocation of 11.6 billion euros for the construction of the bridge over the Strait, but through an amendment to the budget law, it has restructured the funds to finance the project. The approved budget law authorizes a spending of 11.6 billion euros, pending the identification of funding sources to reduce the burden on the state budget. The government’s amendment specifies a total expenditure of 9.312 billion euros, allocated over several years until 2032. Additionally, expenditures of 718 million euros and 1.6 billion euros are authorized, with corresponding reductions from the Development and Cohesion Fund for the 2021-2027 programming period. The funds will also be allocated to the Sicily and Calabria regions, as indicated by the Cipess resolution.
