On Wednesday 18 May, Anne Elisabeth Jensen, coordinator of the Baltic-Adriatic Corridor, visited the Bologna Freight Village and its rail terminals. This visit follows a first virtual meeting held in October 2020, where the infrastructure and its projects had already been presented.
Now Interporto Bologna SpA has a more extensive and strengthened railway network and has obtained funding from MIMS to equip the railway area with an additional terminal, which will bring the infrastructure up to European standards with the addition of new 750 m long tracks.
The importance of strengthening the connections with the ports and, to this end, the centrality of the freight village, located at the natural crossroads of five traffic routes connecting northern and southern Europe, and on three TEN-T corridors: Baltic-Adriatic Corridor 1, Mediterranean Corridor 3 and ScanMed Corridor 5, were also emphasised.
The Baltic-Adriatic Corridor stretches from the Baltic ports of Gdansk, Gdynia, Szczecin and Świnoujście in the north to the Adriatic ports of Koper, Trieste, Venice and Ravenna in the south, via Warsaw, Wroklav, Vienna and Bratislava.
