Implementation of port-city interface works – Waterfront redevelopment works in Marina di Carrara – Scopes 1 and 2 – Road maintenance, urban planning and new maritime structural works – Investment 37,000,000 Euros

The project involves the functional and environmental redevelopment of the Waterfront in the port of Marina di Carrara. The planned interventions address all issues related to the port-city interface and involve various project categories, such as structural works, ordinary and special roads, construction and street furniture, railways, maritime and plant engineering works.

The project concerns the construction of a new access gate to the east of the commercial port, and the redevelopment of the road axes of Viale Zaccagna, Viale Giovanni da Verrazzano and Cristoforo Colombo to the intersection with Via Modena. Also planned is a change to the route of the railway, which will be brought inside the port of call and to realize which will require a new crossing that will provide a different entrance for trains. Another novelty is the construction in Viale da Verrazzano of a traffic circle and another bridge leading to the new entrance, which will also have a positive impact on the development of the commercial and tourist induced activities in the area, generating a significant increase in employment in all the sectors involved, such as manufacturing and shipbuilding, as well as allowing the city to enjoy a wide promenade on the sea at the western pier.

The expected duration of the works is 520 natural days from the handover of the construction site.

The contract for the redevelopment of areas 1 and 2 of the Marina di Carrara waterfront was awarded to the business grouping composed of Società Edilizia Tirrena SET SpA – Agnese Costruzioni SpA – Varia Costruzioni SpA – Cav. Emilio Giovetti Srl.
