Reduce nitrogen dioxide emissions by 66% and pm10 by 13%. increase the zones at 20 and 30 km per hour to lower an accident that makes Genoa one of the most dangerous cities in Italy. These are some of the indications coming from “Clean Cities”, the Legambiente campaign that led to a test. Among the indicators taken into consideration the motorization rate, which today is 48 cars per 100 inhabitants and which it is hoped will decrease to 35 by 2030, the number of electric public transport vehicles, as well as those of sharing mobility, the roads at a maximum speed of 20 or 30 km / h which today are not registered but which should reach 1100 km, in addition to improving the restricted traffic areas or toll areas which today have limited extension and mediocre effectiveness. «The question we asked ourselves was to understand if Genoese mobility is able to withstand the crises – explains Andrea Poggio, responsible for Legambiente mobility – let’s think about the lockdown, but also about the current energy crisis. On some things we are not in too bad shape, I think at 10 pm, but we do very badly for 2.5 pm or Nox, which is diesel pollution and, above all, there is no planning to slow down traffic, with cities at 30 per hour, with all proximity services, 15 minutes from the residence “. Indications that become the basis for a discussion with the public administration to find room for improvement. “We can say that we have traced the road in these 5 years – explains the councilor for mobility of the Municipality of Genoa, Matteo Campora – with cycle paths or the electrification of vehicles. We need to do more, we think of areas with speeds of 30 km / h that we must take a census and increase, especially where there are schools. The absolute figure, however, is to go to a redesigned city where citizens have to make the choice of local public transport. We are experimenting with free access, which we will continue , but we must also work on an efficient and fast service because this is the way to reduce urban pollution “. Legambiente, therefore, calls for acceleration on pedestrian areas and public transport.
