Construction of the Tremezzina bypass
VARIANTE DELLA TREMEZZINA (TREMEZZINA BYPASS)
SS340 REGINA HAS REOPENED
WHAT IS IT?
It is an important road work to build an other way to avoid traffic jams between Colonno and Tremezzo.
That area is often subject to traffic congestions because the streets are narrow and a lot of trucks risk to get stuck and in the last years the volume of traffic has increased, especially during summer because of tourism.
HOW LONG THE ROAD WORKS WILL BE?
They will close the road in Colonno (you cannot pass even by foot) from Monday the 29th of November 2021 at 09.30 a.m. to Tuesday the 29th of March 2022 at 05.00 p.m.
The construction company need these months to build the entrance, the next construction phases will not affect the traffic.
