Rome – “Hundreds of construction sites scattered in every street of the city have inevitably sent Rome into a tailspin. Traffic everywhere and unsustainable travel times for those who have to go to their workplace. “
“This is the result of improvised works, done in a hurry, without planning and rationality, only to throw smoke in the eyes of the citizens after 5 years of very little maintenance of the roads and abandonment of public transport. It is also serious not to have taken advantage of the reduced mobility of the Romans for the anticovid measures to carry out these works. “
“A situation that is no longer sustainable for the Romans and the Romans, which must change soon! Getting around Rome must be easy again, for a city that really takes 15 minutes. Our mobility program focuses on three pillars: environmental sustainability, innovation of services and technologies and investments in ‘iron care’ “. Thus in a post on Facebook Roberto Gualtieri, candidate of the center-left for mayor of Rome.
“Right from the start – he writes again – we will implement a clear and effective strategy, centered on ten points: we will reform the governance of the mobility system to rationalize the competences of the municipality and relaunch companies; we will bring the local public transport stations closest to the citizens; we will introduce the disability manager to ensure accessibility for people with disabilities; we will guarantee a sustainable organization of traffic, favoring intermodality, sharing and removing the many abandoned vehicles on the territory; we will make investments to digitize the offer of services according to the Mobility as a Sevice model; we will invest in the ‘care of iron’ for a modern integrated and sustainable transport system based on railways, subways and tramways; we will renew the fleet of means for surface public transport thanks to the resources of the NRP; we will relaunch Atac, making it a great patrimony of Rome Capital; we will rethink urban freight logistics, encouraging sustainable deliveries; we will promote the use of taxis and car rental with driver to reduce urban traffic. The citizens of Rome – concludes Gualtieri – have the right to simple and sustainable mobility, as in other European capitals. Rome must be reborn! ”.
