“For me it is a thrill, as a minister and as an Italian, to have finally approved the project after 50 years of talk”
“The 14 billion for the Messina Bridge will be found in the budget law, we will begin to leave. Sicilians lose 6 billion euros every year due to the lack of a direct connection. It is a bridge that will cost as much as a year’s income citizenship and which will last decades and decades”. Matteo Salvini said it when he arrived in Catania for the closing of the electoral campaign of the candidate Enrico Trantino. “The funding will start in December, the goal is to start construction sites in the summer of 2024, after 54 years it’s a great satisfaction,” he said.
“For me it is a thrill, as a minister and as an Italian, to have finally approved the project for the bridge of all Italians after 50 years of chatter. because it is not only the bridge that connects Sicily to Calabria, it is the bridge of all Italians “, he added. “The bridge will bring 100,000 jobs, real jobs, for children, for workers – he said again – which will allow millions of Sicilians to be able to connect quickly to the rest of Italy and Europe”. “But the bridge is not enough, there are 11 billion for the railways between Catania, Messina and Palermo – he said – almost 30 billion of real investments in construction sites, public works in Sicily, makes me proud”.
