(ANSA) – AGNONE, MAY 19 – The ‘Sente’ viaduct, which connects Molise and Abruzzo, will not reopen. The report of the Anas technicians is merciless: without an intervention on the structure, the safety requirements are lacking. The news was announced in a press conference at the headquarters of the Province of Isernia. The work was built in the 70s and, following post-earthquake checks in 2018, showed criticality for the rotation of the highest pylon and for this reason it has been forbidden to transit for four years. The overall funding for the works is 40 million euros which will have to be supported by the Province, since the viaduct falls within the jurisdiction of the body.

“The major problems – explained the president of the Province, Alfredo Ricci – concern the section with the greatest height, about 180 meters, it does not allow any type of partial transit, for example with continuous monitoring, or a buffer intervention”. But the problem of that stretch – it is clear from the Anas report – is not only the pylon because even exceptional atmospheric phenomena could lead to a collapse without the possibility of forecasting.

Ricci recalled that the Province had given Anas a loan of 2 million euros, which allowed geological studies, analyzes, planning and that it activated all the procedures so that that road artery passes under the responsibility of Anas ” because in this way it is easier – he specified – to find funding. All the steps, including by the Region, have been made and now the matter is in the hands of the Government “.

“Furthermore – concluded Ricci – we have instructed Anas, who is carrying out the design, to divide it into lots in order to give priority to the work that does not allow alternatives, so as to be able to reopen, keeping the remaining part of the viaduct monitored”. (HANDLE).
