Ferragosto exodus, 3 hours of waiting for the embarkations in Sicily

A note from Anas reports it

Waiting times of about 3 hours at the Villa San Giovanni embarkations for Sicily due to slowdowns and queues on the A2 ‘Autostrada del Mediterraneo’. This was reported by a note from Anas which, in anticipation of the increase in vehicular flows this morning, oversees the network with constant monitoring of personnel, prompt intervention in the event of critical issues and the maximum possible reduction in the number of active construction sites, suspended in 811, along the relevant road and motorway network.

Intense but flowing traffic on the main tourist itineraries: the A2 ‘Autostrada del Mediterraneo’ which crosses Campania, Basilicata and Calabria; the state roads 106 Jonica and 18 Tirrena Inferiore in Calabria; the A19 Palermo-Catania and A29 Palermo-Mazara del Vallo motorways in Sicily; the 131 Carlo Felice state road in Sardinia; the 148 Pontina nel Lazio state road, a particularly busy artery which, together with the SS7 “Appia” ensures connections between Rome and the tourist resorts of lower Lazio; the E45 itinerary (SS675 and SS3 bis) which involves Umbria, Tuscany, Emilia Romagna and connects the north-east with central Italy; the SS1 Aurelia (Lazio, Tuscany and Liguria), SS16 Adriatica (Puglia, Molise, Abruzzo, Emilia-Romagna and Veneto) routes.

Finally, in the north, the RA13 and RA14 motorway junctions in Friuli-Venezia Giulia towards the border crossings, the SS36 of Lake Como and Spluga in Lombardy, the SS45 of Val Trebbia in Liguria, the SS26 of Valle D’Aosta and the SS309 Romea between Emilia-Romagna and Veneto and the SS 51 of Alemagna in Veneto.
