Subject: Status of the projected multimodal system linking Lamezia Terme Airport with the Central Station, Germaneto and Catanzaro Lido
The Calabria regional operational programme (ROP) 2014-2020, through priority axis 7, provides for the implementation of the multimodal project linking Lamezia Terme Airport with the Central Station, Germaneto and Catanzaro Lido in order to improve regional mobility and to ensure the quality, interconnection and functionality of the transport system in Calabria.
As already stated by the Commission in its answer to question E-001566/2020, however, this project is suffering from considerable delays, which are jeopardising its implementation under the 2014-2020 regional programme.
Moreover, despite the fact that in previous years (see E-002581/2018 (ASW)) the Managing Authority undertook to submit a detailed time schedule for the project and the financial arrangements for each part of the project, together with an illustration of all the outputs and expected results, there are still uncertainties as to the timeframe for the completion of the project and incomplete information on its current status.
In view of this, can the Commission say:
whether it considers the delay in the project, with a view to its completion, to be of concern;
whether it is aware of any detailed time schedule concerning the time needed to complete the work;
what amount of expenditure relating to the project, under ROP 2014-2020, has already been certified to the Commission to date?
