Port Of Reggio Callabria Set For Redevelopment

Port of Reggio Callabria set for redevelopment

Regio Callabria, Italy (PortSEurope) January 10, 2022 – The Southern Porto di Reggio Calabria is set for redevelopment as the managing authority aims to improve passenger management at the port. The first step is the removal of cement silos owned by Cementi dello Stretto which are not part of the new layout of the port and have not been used for more than four years. The
concession ended last year and silos should be dismantled by mid-April this year. There will also be changes to the port’s road network. The President of Autorità di Sistema Portuale dello Stretto (AdSP – Strait), Mario Mega, said that the elimination of the unused system would make it possible to free important spaces of the Banchina di Levante to be returned to port operations and which will be able to enter the overall redevelopment project. Municipal Councilor Hon. Battaglia, also a former member of the AdSP Management Committee and also one of the promoters of the removal idea, welcomed the start of the dismantling works by issuing the following statement: “We worked as Calabrian components of the CdG of the Port System Authority of the Strait together with our friend Alberto Porcelli and in concert with the President Mega to define an idea of ​​a Port for the city of Reggio that can finally be called such. This is why today, as Councilor with responsibility for Mobility and the Port, I express satisfaction with the start of the disassembly operations of the looming silos in the port area. Inevitably, this will lead to restrictions on traffic but I am sure that, thanks also to the memorandum of understanding signed between the Municipal Administration and the AdSP, the best possible solution will be defined shortly”. The Port of Reggio is a seaport in the Mediterranean Sea serving the Southern Italian city of Reggio Calabria, separated from Sicily by the Strait of Messina. The port handles passenger and vehicle Ro-Ro services across the Messina Strait to Messina, North East Sicily. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2022.
