Today to Rome the representatives of the Regions of the North the Italian West and Italian Railway Net (RFI) have undersigned an understanding protocol face to develop the railway net and to realize technological and infrastructural participations in order to guarantee the potenziamento of the transport goods on iron and for the increment of the intermodalità in Piemonte, Lombardy and Liguria.

the agreement comprises total investments for Italian Railway Net of beyond 18 billion euros (comprehensive of the Great already under way Operas), of which approximately 45% financed in the within of the new Contract of Program 2017-2021 Part Investments. The programmed participations in order to increase the traffic goods in the regions of the North the West include the potenziamento of the railway net, the adaptation to the international standards for the transport of the goods (length trains, shape limit, axial cargo) and better connectivity to the ports and infrastructures of interchange road/sea-railroad.

Moreover the understanding defines moreover the institution of a Technical Secretariat composed from represented of the regions the signers and Italian Railway Net that the task will have to monitor the state of advance of the characterized plans.

"the understanding protocol - Maurizio Gentile has explained - has like objective that to increase the ability to the railway infrastructure and to improve of the performances, also in sight of the increase of traffic previewed with the progressive activation of the new ones it tunnel of base, currently under construction. Italian Railway net - it has emphasized Kind - is working in way decided on the transport goods: besides the international passes, we are adapting to all the lines that take part of the corridors TRY to the international standards, previewing long trains until 750 meters, shape of four meters to the edge and the increase of the axial cargo and are previewing participations of last mile on the terminals in order to increase of the ability and to fluidificare/velocizzare the maneuver operations".

from Liguria city council member Rixi has evidenced that "the signed protocol today is an important stage on the road undertaken with the start of States general of the Logistics. Ours three Regions have begun a common distance and of sharing of the proposals with all the actors of the row for being able to buy back a position of leadership to European level and to on hand put it of the development not only of the macroregion of the North the West, but of the entire Country. The area of the North the West - Rixi has remembered - generates 37% of the national traffics and from from Liguria ports EU passes on a national level approximately 53% of the extra container, but we must recover land with the ports of the Europe North playing to weapons pairs. The infrastructural modernization, also waiting for the conclusion of the great railway works, is a fundamental step aerobic for the logistics of the transport goods and our portualità".

"the demand for all the operators of the railway logistics, that we have involved with Liguria and Piemonte in States general of the logistics of the North the West - has asserted the city council member of the Lombardy Region, Alessandro Sorte - has been above all this: help us to return and more convenient more efficient the transport goods on railroad. Today we give answer to these requirements. Coordinating to us with RFI we are succeeding to make so that the intense activities on the railway net previewed in the next few years allow the circulation of longer cargo trains, heavier, with bulkier cargos. In a word more convenient, guaranteeing meanwhile a better co-existence of the traffic goods with the traffic fleeting, thanks to the potenziamento of the lines. I consider that this is the main roads for an increase of the traffics, to service of a field, that logistic one, than in Lombardy and in the North the West it carries out a role pulling ahead for the entire economic system".

"In this protocol - the Piedmontese city council member Balocco has rimarcato - is finalized all the spirit of the Cabin of Direction on the logistics between the three regions that the common action has inspired in the past few years. For the Piemonte important participations in a position to resolving some criticalities are previewed and to improve the infrastructure to service of the goods. In particular I would want to emphasize the participation on the node of Novara, the adaptations in order to return more efficient and consistent to the international standards ours to interpose to you of Novara, Rivalta and Orbassano, let alone the improvement of the connections with the portualità from Liguria and the adduction to the corridors Mediterranean and the Rhine-Alps".
