Genoa, Italy (PortSEurope) June 11, 2018 – The president of Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Ligure Occidentale (AdSP – Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority), Paolo Emilio Signorini, has spoken at the 2018 Conference of the Rhine Corridor which was held at the Committee of the Regions in Brussels.
Signorini was raising the issue of access to the Mediterranean transport corridor.
“We have now entered a fully implemented phase of the Rhine-Alpine Corridor,” declared Signorini, “the most important European corridor in terms of GDP and the population of the European Union. Genoa is one of the two extremes of the Corridor, the gateway to the South. Together with the Swiss, the Germans, the Dutch and the Belgians, we are making substantial rail, port, interport and highway investments. We all have in mind the date of 2022-2023 when we will finally have a completely flat railway from Genoa to Rotterdam. This is our horizon and our goal. We know, however, that in order for this to happen, we must guard and ensure that accidents and incidents do not hinder this journey. The Rastatt incident was emblematic. Being present in all the European bodies and in all the places where the events of the Corridor are discussed is fundamental”.
