Milan city hall has published a detailed programme of all the street maintenance works planned from now until October.
On the administration website, residents can look up the streets zone by zone to see where and when disruptive work is planned. The lists will be kept regularly updated. And signs will be posted in the days before work starts, warning motorists not to leave their cars parked where a dig is planned.
“The plan covers the whole city, from the suburbs to the centre,” said public works councillor Carmela Rozza, “and aims at completely repairing carriageways, footpaths and stone-paved streets. It’s a major commitment by this administration to ensure safety and decorum, and give the city the dignity it deserves.”
Rozza also promised that the work would be kept under constant quality control, “because we’re spending people’s money. With this in mind I’ve set up teams of qualified personnel to keep an eye on the work. And residents can play a useful part by pointing out problems to the complaints desk set up on the website.”
