«The bridge is not a whim of mine, I have other whims. As a Milan fan, for example, I would have liked to reach the Champions League final." So the minister Matteo Salvini in Taormina (Messina) for the 60th anniversary of the Federation of Italian road hauliers. "Twenty years ago it was a different context - he says - without works it is different". And he recalled the «28 billion of investments in Sicily and another 28 billion in Calabria, 11 billion to modernize the railways in Palermo, Catania and Messina. I'm a big head, anyone who knows me knows that." Among the news that the minister also announced new rules for those who use scooters: "It is important to have rules on 4 wheels, on 8 wheels but it is equally essential to give rules also for two-wheeled vehicles", such as scooters . «I have two children, two-wheeled vehicles must also be respected for the protection of those who use them, a path during which you will be involved».
And he added: "This is not a caretaker government but a political one, we don't need external prompters". Another political consideration: «I have every intention of arriving with Giorgia and Silvio at the end of the mandate».
And on the motorway arteries: «There are some motorway arteries in collapse. I'm following the works on the Brenner - he says - some infrastructure that has been awaited for years. By the summer we will inaugurate the final stretch of the Veneto foothills with Zaia, which will allow for an alternative especially for road haulage. It's been seven months of challenge, I'm doing a master's degree in bridges, tunnels and variants».
