Focus on the current works to make the Ritiro viaduct safe, which are penalizing the entire population of the province of Messina, especially in this summer period. Guests of the first public works council commission, chaired by the director Libero Gioveni, the engineer Anna Sidoti del Cas, Rup of the project, and the contracting company “Toto Costruzioni” represented by the technical director Dan Alpern and the construction manager Pietro Certo. “From the long debate – explained Gioveni – the difficulties that led to extending the timing for completion emerged, both of an accidental nature related to Covid which unfortunately decimated the workers and slowed down the receipt of materials from abroad, both of technical nature, such as the state of excessive age and deterioration of the piles which required structural interventions not initially foreseen. However – continued the president – the presumed completion dates of the works were provided, that is December 2021 for the delivery of the sea side lane, towards Palermo, and June 2022 for the delivery of the mountain side lane, towards Messina. It was specified by the company – Gioveni concluded – that when the bays in the mountain side lane will be launched around January 2022, in the lane towards Palermo, in the meantime completed, the two-way traffic will be established starting from Ponte Gallo. The Commission reserves the right to visit the site shortly, also at the invitation of the same company “.
