Civitavecchia Port Ready To Tender Railway And Ferry Works

Civitavecchia port ready to tender railway and ferry works

Civitavecchia, Italy (PortSEurope) October 15, 2020 – Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Centro-Settentrionale (AdSP – Centre-North Tyrrhenian Sea Port Authority) has concluded tenders for two projects designed to improve rail and ferry services at the port. The first is the reorganization of the rail system in the port area which will reorganise the internal tracks, add a direct connection with the “Terminal Commerciale”
(Container Terminal and Auto Terminal) and the layout for quays 23 and 24 (Terminal del Ferro Cromo and multi-purpose quay). The work will cost around €600,000 with half paid by the Lazio Region and the remainder by the European Union under the EU’s CEF Transport 2019 Call. The second project is the creation of the yards behind pier 2 which is currently under construction, is part of the planning of the Darsena Traghetti faciity being built and is one of those works foreseen within the Port Regulatory Plan. The cost is around €5.4 million and will allow the creation of new spaces available for Ro-Ro and Ro-pax traffic, with an equal extension about 39,000 m². Both interventions, included in both the Three-Year Operational Plan and the Three-Year Program of Works in force, are of a strategic and relevant nature, ensuring a development perspective of the Lazio port with evident opportunities both for the regional territory and for the entire central-northern area of the peninsula. “These are two further elements that go in the direction, always hoped for by this administration, of making the port of Civitavecchia more and more competitive”, comments President of the AdSP Francesco Maria di Majo, “and adding an international context. I take this opportunity to give further good news. Yesterday, in fact, I signed with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport the program agreement “Fund for investments and infrastructural development of the country” under which the body will benefit from the public contribution of approximately €100 million, 70 of which will be allocated to the rearrangement of the internal viability of the port of Civitavecchia and the remaining €30 million for the construction of the new commercial port of Fiumicino”.
