The shopping area in the complex will also be enlarged to 17,200 m2 (currently 11,030 m2).
The agreement with Rome City Council also includes the construction of an operations and maintenance centre for the city’s electric buses with room for 55 vehicles measuring 9 metres in length and 123 vehicles measuring 5 meters in length. These buses will be used by the municipal public transport agency. The project also involves managing the existing 230-space motorbike parking facility.
