Local works

2 artificial noise abatement tunnels have been constructed in the highway stretch between Casalecchio and Sasso Marconi (at Calzavecchio hill and in the Ceretolo area) and 3.8 km of noise barriers installed.

Upgrading of the Sasso Marconi - Barberino stretch will affect 8 municipalities in the Emilia Romagna and Tuscany regions (Sasso Marconi, Marzabotto, Monzuno, Grizzana Morandi, Castiglione dei Pepoli, San Benedetto Val di Sambro, Barberino di Mugello and Firenzuola),. The work is financed by Autostrade per l'Italia, which is undertaking a series of interventions, including: 

  • a slip road for the municipality of Firenzuola
  • construction of schools and sports facilities
  • restoration of monuments and historical centres
  • expansion of ordinary roads
  • relocation of high voltage power lines to allow elimination of electromagnetic pollution in the municipality of Grizzana Morandi.
  • environmental impact mitigation. Environmental observatories have also been set up in Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, under ANAS supervision.
