Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova Motorway and Cepav Due renew ongoing dialogue with the region on the high-speed railway project between Brescia and Verona
07 October 2022

The information meetings organized by Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova with Consorzio Cepav due to illustrate the works on the high-speed railway line between Brescia East and Verona, i.e. the Lombardy-Veneto lot that is part of the Mediterranean Corridor of the trans-European rail transport network, continue.

On last 6 October, the online meeting "Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova and the HS/HC Brescia East - Verona railway line: changes to the road system resulting from the construction site of Sirmione " was held, with representatives of the various municipal administrations and representatives of the police forces responsible for traffic and road safety in the territories affected* by the works for the construction of the Sirmione Tunnel (GA09), for an update and a fruitful comparison on the impact of the construction site and on the management of interference with motorway traffic and ordinary roads

As is well known, the project for the construction of the AV/AC LINE MILAN - VERONA Functional Lot Brescia East - Verona involves the territory of 11 municipalities in the provinces of Brescia, Verona and Mantua**, for the construction of a railway line of about 48 km in total, 37 of which developed mostly alongside the existing motorway infrastructure in the territory under concession to Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padua of the A4 Holding Group.

The high criteria and safety standards adopted by the Cepav due Consortium have made it possible to manage and minimize any construction site problems , and the development of the innovative approach employed by Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova, with the implementation of a dedicated PMO - Project Management Office - structure called 'ABP CEPAV DUE', has guaranteed the best management on the impact of interference on traffic and road conditions.

For this purpose, the meeting dedicated to the presentation of the interfering activity with the junction and the toll booth of Sirmione was promoted.

In order to allow the works started by the Cepav Due Consortium for the construction of the Sirmone Tunnel, the partial closure of the Sirmione highway tollbooth, to the progressive motorway 251+800, has been arranged from 13 October 2022 to 30 March 2023, with reopening on 31 March 2023.

In particular, the entrances to the Sirmione tollbooth, both in the direction of Milan and in the direction of Venice, will remain closed for the entire duration of the works. Alternatively, travellers who want to take the motorway will have to enter at the Desenzano del Garda or Peschiera tollbooths.

Travellers coming from Venice will not be able to exit at the Sirmione tollbooth: alternatively, they may exit at the Peschiera d/G tollbooth or at the Desenzano d/G tollbooth. Instead, travellers coming from Milan may continue to exit regularly at the Sirmione tollbooth.

Since the Sirmione tollbooth will be partial, travellers will be accompanied by appropriate signs along the alternative routes identified with the aim of allowing the traffic flow to resume the highway with the least inconvenience and safety risks. Therefore, travellers, through the ordinary road system, will be conveyed along the SR/SP 11, which will become the main alternative to the motorway route.

The work site activities at the Sirmione toll station were planned during the winter period to avoid creating inconvenience during the tourist season. In addition to the strengthening of preventive information, which includes the specific use and management of variable messaging on the PMVs, and the strengthening of teams dedicated to worksite surveillance activities, punctual communication to the territory is planned, with specific information and communications, to allow all parties involved to correctly organise their activities.
