The railway line of ValVenosta, once the electrification work is completed, will be entrusted to SAD and Trenitalia. Governor Arno Kompatscher has confirmed that this is the orientation of the council. The Governor announced that the decision involves a number of economic advantages, given that without the intervention of the national company, two more trains to run between Val Venosta and Brenner should have been bought.
On criticism made yesterday by the South Tyrolean Company, according to which the region would give up a payback whereas the registered office of Trenitalia is not in South Tyrol, Kompatscher cut short by claiming that: "this is a nonsense". "Transfers from Roma to Bolzano - he explained - are in fact calculated on the whole GDP and not on the invoices of the individual companies."
