Salvini in Le Figaro: “The bridge will be built over the strait and will connect Palermo to Berlin”

There is no doubt that the bridge over the strait will be built. Speech by Matteo Salvini, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Transport. His statements came from two interviews in Spanish El Pais and in French Le Figaro. For the latter, he declared that a stable connection between Calabria and Sicily would “make it possible to connect Palermo and Berlin”. The project has been talked about for decades, but now the start-up of the works, scheduled for the summer of 2024, could come concretely closer to “starting up in 2032,” creating “unprecedented jobs and wealth” for the South. But, select to El Paisthe bridge will create a competitive advantage for the whole of Italy.

to Le Figaro, the MIT owner also spoke of the Turin-Lyon high-speed train: a structure that “France must play its part.” And on the possibility that Paris may decide not to accept the appeal by 2032, as recommended by the Infrastructure Steering Council (the advisory body in Paris only) last February, Salvini replies: «I refuse to imagine that France has changed its mind or simply decided to slow down work. To fund regional trains in his home. Such disrespect would be towards Italy, but also towards the European Commission, which has approved hundreds of millions of euros for this Mediterranean corridor.” Today, the Deputy Prime Minister will arrive in Luxembourg to attend the EU Transport Council.
