PERIOD: 2010 - 2011
CLIENT: ITALFERR S.p.A.
VALUE: € 14,000,000.00
This project pursued the primary objective of increasing the overall flow rate of the Villoresi Main Channel, primarily to respond to water shortages of recent years in agricultural areas south of the Milan-Novara rail line. The project was developed with the aim of ensuring a future supply of water from the Villoresi Channel to the EXPO 2015 site.
In parallel, planned expansions will enhance the environmental and natural aspects of the suburban areas along the banks of the Channel.
Finally, the project also includes the design of a pedestrian and bicycle path linking to existing paths south of the Milan-Novara railway.
