PESARO Fratelli d’Italia deputy Antonio Baldelli, member of the IX Transport Commission, has started a series of meetings with the mayors interested in the new Adriatic line project on which the government and RFI are working. He has already met the mayor of Mondolfo Nicola Barbieri and the mayor of Senigallia Massimo Olivetti.

«Barter pro domo sua»

«On the railway bypass – he explains – Matteo Ricci seems to have traded the institutional responsibility of mayor of the Marche region for the need to carve out, after the expiry of his mandate, a niche of visibility. His incitements to revolt for non-existent political ‘revenge’ of the regional council or for equally non-existent thefts of funds from Rossini’s city are evidently dictated by the needs of careerism and visibility, not by factual data. So let’s look at the facts. The resources already allocated to the Adriatic railway remain available, while the unfortunate bypass project has been returned to the sender. A result that protects Pesaro, and the liveability of its neighborhoods, together with the other coastal cities, guaranteeing the development of the Marche and other Adriatic regions up to Puglia”.

He then takes stock of the situation, recalling that in 2022, the Marche Region had already asked RFI and the Draghi Government to remodel the bypass project «because the citizens of Pesaro must know that the bypass proposal would have been an urban planning “monster” for the city, with the result of saving 10 minutes for passengers heading to Bologna or Bari and, at the same time, canceling the high speed trains to the Adriatic, increasing freight trains along the tourist locations, a few meters from hotels, campsites and other economic activities. Without considering the impact on the coast that the return of the railway line at Fano would have had.” Then with the Meloni government, adds Baldelli, the atmosphere changed. «Together with RFI they have started studying a new line for the entire backbone, in particular for the Marche region, from Gabicce to San Benedetto. A decisive step that averted the risk of saying goodbye to high speed forever and resigning ourselves to the passage of thousands of freight trains coming from southern ports along our beaches and within the coastal municipalities, including Pesaro. The people of the Marche region, from north to south, deserve high speed as much as those who live along the Tyrrhenian Sea, together with high capacity for freight trains and the redevelopment of the current line to be used as a surface metro. Unless Ricci is working to blow up this prospect of modernization and to leave the nearest high-speed station in Bologna. The next step will be the creation by RFI of a more detailed project of the interventions planned for the Adriatic Railway, with estimates of timing and resources, as well as a work plan which, for obvious reasons, will have to proceed in pieces”.

«Now technical debate»

And then more digs at the mayor of Pesaro: «We left the mayor of Pesaro to argue with himself and worked to guarantee the maintenance of the available resources that will be absorbed into the overall project (i.e. the billion and 800 million that the Draghi government had allocated to the redevelopment of the railway section between Pesaro and Fano ed.). Now the real debate, much more constructive, will move to a purely technical level between the Government, the institutional supply chain of the territories and the RFI. The next step will be the creation by RFI of a more detailed project of the interventions planned for the Adriatic Railway, with estimates of timing and resources, as well as a work plan which, for obvious reasons, will have to proceed in pieces”.
