The Regional Council, in line with the new regulatory framework and due to an increase in efficiency levels on the prevailing activity of the in-house company YOUR spa, approved an act with which the Regional Council is asked to approve the strategic direction for the acquisition of the business branch of its subsidiary Sangritana Spa as well as to define strategic guidelines aimed at growing the company for the period 2021-2025. With this operation, TUA re-internalizes the activities relating to the performance of road transport services to the market. Specifically, those to and from Rome, currently managed by Sangritana. The new regulatory framework allows the in-house company to also perform market services provided that more than 80% of the turnover relates to the main activity of Local Public Transport and TUA spa adopts separate accounting systems. This proposal is also consistent with the guidelines contained in the Regional Economy and Finance Document 2022-2024.
Green light to the remodeling of the interventions and to the reprogramming of the economies of the Cohesion Development Fund 2000-2006 and to the extension to 31 December 2023 of the final deadline for reporting the expenditure.

The scheme of Agreement between the Abruzzo Region, the Single Abruzzese Transport Company (TUA) SpA and Rete Ferroviaria Italiana SpA for entrusting the latter with the essential functions provided for by the reference legislation, thus guaranteeing the separation of services provided for by the legislator. The Legislative Decree of 15 July 2015 identifies, in fact, the railway infrastructure manager (such as any body or company responsible for the operation, maintenance and renewal of the railway infrastructure of a network as well as for participation in its development) and also identifies the so-called essential functions, namely the adoption of decisions relating to the allocation of railway paths and the adoption of decisions relating to the imposition of charges for the use of the infrastructure, including the calculation and collection of charges. Furthermore, the decree in question provides that the managers of regional railway infrastructures are legally distinct entities from the company that performs the transport service on the same network and, in the event that this condition does not exist, also provides that the managers proceed to entrust the essential functions to a third party, independent in legal and decision-making terms from railway companies. Therefore, the Lanciano-S.Vito line, for which the TUA company currently performs the dual role of manager of the regional infrastructure as well as a railway company operating rail transport services, is subject to the obligations connected with the implementation of this Legislative Decree and therefore it is necessary to proceed, through the resolution, to the draft Agreement.
