Strait of Messina: approval of the Strategic Plan of the Port System

The document is the key to developing the Strait's port-related system and the six ports involved

The Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport has approved the Strategic System Planning Document (DPSS) of the ports managed by the Strait Port System Authority. This document was developed by Proger, which heads the grouping also made up of Dinamica and Systematica. 

The content of the DPSS defines the objectives and coordinated development strategies of up to 6 ports under the Strait Port System Authority – Messina, Milazzo, Tremestieri, Villa San Giovanni, Reggio Calabria and Saline – and concerns both the port, retroport and port-city interaction areas, as well as the last mile road and rail infrastructure connections outside the port area.

This is an important result for the working group, which comes at the end of an articulated process involving the numerous municipalities concerned, the Regions of Sicily and Calabria and, finally, the Ministry”, commented President Umberto Sgambati“on the basis of our work, the System Authority can now launch the procedures for drafting the individual Port Master Plans, proposing synergic solutions to the existing criticalities, supporting the development of port activities and ensuring increasingly modern and high quality services for passengers and operators”.
