Livorno - “In December, just after the holidays, we will open the rail link between the Darsena Toscana Wharf and the RFI rail network, which was financed with regional funds and funds from Ferrovie dello Stato [i.e. the Italian state-owned railway]. The President of the Region of Tuscany, Enrico Rossi was speaking of the interventions for the relaunching of the area around Livorno that has been hit by the economic crisis. Furthermore, he added, “FS has confirmed that the tender process for the contract for the link between the port of Livorno and the Vespucci Freight Village begins next year. It is worth €16-17 million in value, and is to be done in two halves.” According to Rossi, “things are moving and there are also positive signs. I would certainly not speak of a turnaround, but rather of a recovery that gives hope for the future.
