(Teleborsa) – We are moving towards the emergency procedure to save in extremis the maritime section between Civitavecchia and Cagliari. After 70 years the two Tirrenia ferries crossed the Tyrrhenian Sea this night for the last time leaving, from now on, the south of Sardinia completely isolated by sea on the territorial continuity section.
“It is between working on a solution to get out of the emergency as soon as possible” they know from Mims. The fastest way out is that of direct assignment but, after a tender and two expressions of interest gone deserted, it is necessary to find a shipping company interested in carrying on the service. Until yesterday the route was guaranteed, with extension and without compensation, by Tirrenia, but at this point they could also move forward Grimaldi, which already operates on Cagliari with the connection to Naples and on Civitavecchia with the routes to Porto Torres and Olbia, or GNV which does not land in Cagliari, but connects the port of Lazio with Olbia.
“We have moved in a sparse and unstructured way” attacks the Filt-Cigl. “If someone thought that the tsunami would stop with the elimination of connections to and from Arbatax, not only does he have no sense of reality but he did not deign to listen to the rumors and warnings raised by the CGIL – says thel leader of the transport union Arnaldo Boeddu -. It is no longer possible to postpone the table several times requested in which to put the needs of Sardinians, businesses and workers in common. Reaffirming the right to territorial continuity for both passengers and goods, with routes that go beyond Civitavecchia, however, is an indispensable condition if you really want to give a future to the social and economic progress of an important part of the island. For this reason, the first issue to be resolved is to return the ships to port but, at the same time, continue the process so that the Sardinia Region is also fully entitled to maritime continuity as is the case for air “.
