(ANSA) – TRIESTE, 23 JUL – Thanks to the coordination of the Prefecture and the support of the Fire Brigade, Traffic Police and Civil Protection – all involved in the fight against the fire that is devastating the Karst – the Autovie Venete concessionaire succeeded on Wednesday afternoon to reopen the motorway in the Villesse – Trieste Lisert section towards Trieste (as well as Sistiana – Redipuglia towards Venice) in time for the weekend escape.
An intervention that Autovie considers “providential” and which is allowing vacationers to travel along the network without particular inconvenience on a Saturday with a black stamp. The forecast for today is to exceed 180,000 transits at the end of the day.
The Trieste / Lisert barrier – closed for a couple of days – was very crowded by motorists who registered + 20% flows at 1pm compared to the same time on Saturday a year ago. Also the passages at the exit of Latisana (towards Lignano and Bibione) and San Stino + 5% (towards Caorle) increased by 13% (compared to 2021).
Overall, compared to 2021, there is a 7% increase in transits across the entire network compared to the same period in 2021, both for local seaside destinations and those in the direction of Slovenia and Croatia.
Autovie Venete also recorded many departures – especially in the morning – towards the mountain with a particularly intense flow along the Venice – Udine route towards Tarvisio. Queues were then formed in the squares of Lisert, Latisana, San Donà, San Stino and Cessalto.
An accident between San Stino and the Portogruaro junction, which had already been resolved without consequences, created a queue towards Trieste around 3.00 pm today. The situation in that section is normalizing.
Tomorrow will be another busy day with a forecast of 160,000 transits. Next Saturday will be the first great exodus of the summer and therefore a new “black stamp” day. (HANDLE).
