More discomfort for travellers
Milan’s transport authority ATM has annunced that workers of the FAST CONSAL union will hold an eight-hour strike on Tuesday 30 September, from 08.45 to 15.00 and from 18.00 to 19.45, affecting metro, bus and tram services throughout the city.
The strike will avoid the morning and afternoon rush-hours in accordance with the law protecting commuters, but is still expected to cause discomfort to anybody travelling in the city.
As of now, no similar strike action has been advised by the Trenord regional network. Milan city authorities have not announced a suspension of the “Area C” limited traffic zone, which is sometimes opened if strike action threatens to bring the city to a halt.
