Between 30th September and 2nd October 2020 the 7th Project Learning Process Meeting organized by PP042, Calabria Region, took place online and in presence. In particular, on day 1 (30th September 2020) and on day 3 (2nd October 2020) the Staff exchange took place while on day 2 (1st October 2020) the Interregional Learning Workshop (ILW7), the Round Table (RT7) and the Interregional field Visist (IFV7) were organized. The ILW and RT were dedicated to the illustration of the Calabria Region projects and initiatives related to sustainable mobility. As concern the IFV, it started with the visit at the funicular of the city of Catanzaro. The Catanzaro funicular is a funicular railway in the city of Catanzaro, connecting the upper part of the city, at Piazza Roma, with Catanzaro Sala, via an intermediate stop at Piano Casa. In this context, the e-bike system of the AMC, was as well as the parking areas and charging of the electric cars, were presented.
After the visit to the funicular, the next trip was dedicated to the visit of the subway construction site of the city of Catanzaro. The 5 km underground link is part of an EU-funded project that also includes upgrading existing rail lines to metro standards. The new line would link Catanzaro station on the FS route from Lamezia Terme with Dulcino station on the Ferrovie della Calabria line, that runs from Catanzaro Lido to Cosenza. Germaneto metro station would serve the existing railway station and there would be two intermediate stations, one of them serving the university. Once completed, it is envisaged that services from Cosenza would terminate at Catanzaro Città, with metro services running south from Catanzaro Città along the upgraded line to Catanzaro Lido or the new branch to Germaneto.
