Ionian Motorway will witness the laying of the first stone at a ceremony to be held on May 19 at Francavilla Marittima in the province of Cosenza. The lot, worth about EUR 800 million and commissioned by the state road agency Azienda Nazionale Autonoma delle Strade as part of a total investment of EUR 1.3 billion, is being done by Webuild Group, which is overseeing the consolidation of the country’s infrastructure sector in order to strengthen and relaunch it as part of Salini Impregilo’s Progetto Italia plan. The Mega Lot 3 of the Ionian Motorway consists of the construction of a new section of the SS-106 from SS-534 (km 365+150) in Sibari to Roseto Capo Spulico (km 400+000) in the region of Calabria. Work is expected to last seven years.

The section will be 38 kilometres long, running within one kilometre of the old route to help connect the Ionian coastlines in the regions of Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia. It will also connect the A3 motorway with Puglia. The project will improve the area with restoration work at the Archeological Park of Sybaris.

The Ionian Motorway will be part of the Trans-European Transport Network TEN-T, a European initiative to connect transport networks across the region. It will improve sustainable mobility within Italy and the rest of Europe.
