Seven-day marathon, which started yesterday, to “patch up” the holes along the streets, level the battered sidewalks, fix the cobblestones. And redo the lines that delimit the new cycle paths, canceled after months of pedaling. The workers from yesterday until next Monday are busy “healing” the asphalt eaten by rain and traffic and the open cracks in 34 areas, from the center to the suburbs. No municipality is excluded from this first spring lifting. To make the announcement yesterday, the Councilor for Mobility Marco Granelli: “In 2020 we spent 53.6 million euros for road maintenance, or double the 27.8 million of 2019”. The situation, according to Granelli, “has improved” compared to the Gruyere roads of 2019, but a more violent storm is enough to reopen old more or less deep craters. “Covid – adds the commissioner – has not slowed down the work. On the contrary, we managed to strengthen the interventions, having all the contracts in place ». In the colder months, extensive asphalting of the roads is technically impossible. Now, however, with the warm season the workers of the rapid intervention unit of the Municipality resume working non-stop: in a typical week, they plug about 750 holes and reposition 360 blocks of pavé. Which means around 4,500 interventions per month. In each Municipality, the most damaged areas have been identified on which action is being taken this week: in Municipality 1, the blocks are placed in piazza Duomo, via Turati, corso di Porta Ticinese; in Town Hall 2, asphalting of the pavements in piazzale Loreto and via Bottego, in front of the school; in Town Hall 3, the sidewalks are redone from via Don Calabria to via Bertolazzi; asphalting in via Rogoredo 8 (Town Hall 4) in via dei Missaglia (Town Hall 5), while the construction sites of the Vento cycle path proceed along the Naviglio Pavese. And again: redevelopment of the Bacula flyover (8) in via Gola e Ripa di Porta Ticinese (Municipio 6), in Quinto Romano (7) and in over six streets of Municipio 9.
