New step to develop the rail links of the port of Gioia Tauro with markets

CORAP has transferred to the Region the ownership of the railway junction that connects the station of Rosarno to that of St. Ferdinand

The President of the Port System Authority of the Seas Southern Tyrrhenian and Ionian Sea, Andrea Agostinelli, expressed great satisfaction with the expected decision of the Regional Consortium for the Development of Productive Activities (CORAP), consortium of Calabria Region of which in recent weeks the regional body decided on the compulsory administrative liquidation, to transfer to the calabria region itself owns the railway link which connects the station of Rosarno to that of San Ferdinando and then of the bundle of tracks that connects the railway gateway of the port of Gioia Tauro to the national network. Agostinelli highlighted whereas this is a long-awaited administrative act, of which so much it has been discussed in the past, because it is necessary so that the Calabria Region may, in turn, transfer ownership to Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), the infrastructure management body national railway.

Agostinelli explained that once the step is completed, through an agreement signed by the Calabria Region and the Authority of Port System that will take place in days, RFI will thus be able to plan and start the maintenance works of the section railway port, which were financed with the funds of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan in order to ensure its full development, part of an overall vision of growth intermodal port of Gioia Tauro.

The President of the AdSP also pointed out that this Transfer comes at a propitious time for the gateway railway that sees its operator increase the runs of trains, in arrival and departure from Gioia Tauro and heading to the intermodal hubs of Padua, Nola, Bari and Bologna, through a planning of about 30 weekly trips, while at the same time also the terminalista Automar has decided to plan the renovation of the railway auction that crosses the port quay in its concession, functional to a greater increase in the traffic of the cars to and from Gioia Tauro.

"For some time - recalled Agostinelli - we have been waiting for this decision that now allows us to program decisively the further growth of our port, to be finally framed in a perspective of connecting traffic from the sea to the hinterland, complementary to transhipment. This is a strategic element which will have a significant impact on the long-awaited development of intermodality in the port area and back port of Gioia Tauro. At the same time - he concluded Agostinelli - I turn to the extraordinary commissioner of CORAP, Sergio Riitano, so that he gives us the management of some areas within the port, of which it is the owner, in such a way to be able to start lighting and maintenance activities structural necessary to ensure the use of the entire area port in greater safety".
