The Voice of the Susa Valley / 5

They continue to chatter on about fantastic goods traffic through the Susa Valley when, in 15 to 20 years the tunnel will be finished.

Everyone can forecast what will happen in 20 years time, even Elio Catania, president of the FS (State Railway system) and ex vice warehouse person of IBM (the chief warehouse person was Stanca).
And in a special way with our money, since this project will cost us between three or four times the cost of the Messina Bridge.

But why donít we talk instead of what is happening right now.

The number of heavy vehicles coming through the Frejus tunnel has been going down for many years:
-15.47% (including buses) in 2003, -7.61% in 2004, -12.85% in 2005 (projection based on the opening period, since the tunnel was closed for a few months). And if itís going down, why should it increase in the future to such an extent to justify a high capacity line?

For the data, have a look at the website of SITAF Ė the company that manages the tunnel.
