In addition to the safety measures, works for the elimination of level crossings are also contemplated. Other interventions will concern the road that goes from Alghero to Olmedo as well as that for the Fertilia airport. Then you also work on Cagliari Pula (particularly busy during the tourist season), Sant’Antioco, Olbia-Palau and Tertenia-San Priamo.
No additional cost
“In terms of costs, no increase is foreseen for the regional coffers since – adds Solinas -, as requested by us, the commissioner is not entitled to any remuneration or additional emolument from the public finance. Another important signal of attention that we want to give to Sardinia and the Sardinians ».
The assignment will last until the delivery of the interventions carried out. The task of the extraordinary Commissioner will be to supervise the planning, design, assignment and execution of the following infrastructural interventions on the Sardinian road network.
