Lombardy Plan: 3.5 billions for infrastructures and other interventions

Thanks to a regional investment of 3.5 billion euros for municipalities, provinces and other entities in Lombardy, a total value of 5.5 billion of works will be put in place.

The regional council approved in August 2020 the strategic program that will boost the economic recovery of Lombardy.

Thanks to a regional investment of 3.5 billion euros for municipalities, provinces and other entities in Lombardy, a total value of 5.5 billion of works will be put in place.

For the infrastructures, regional funding is worth approximately 1.9 billion euros. It will allow the activation of interventions throughout the whole territory, as a result of extensive consultation with stakeholders and local authorities:

  • road and maintenance works for 2.17 billion (including Paullese, Novedratese, Canturina bis)
  • interventions for the Milan-Cortina 2026 Winter Olympic Games, worth 900 million euros.
  • railway works worth 458 million euros
  • interventions for public transport and intermodality (including Tramvia delle Valli - Brembana Bergamo valley and extensions of the M1 and M5) for 234 million euros
  • interventions for cycling roads, 115 million
  • interventions for navigability, 18 million.

The objective is to boost the socio-economic recovery of Lombardy through works in the territory that may in some cases already be implemented in the two-year period 2020-21.

The program is not limited to infrastructural interventions but includes actions in various sectors, including green and eco-sustainable ones. In fact, important investments are planned for:

  • defense of the soil, 137 million
  • incentives for urban regeneration, 100 million
  • recovery of historic villages, 30 million
  • resources for the removal of asbestos from school buildings, 10 million
  • replacement of obsolete heating systems and polluting boilers in public buildings, 13 million
  • water depollution interventions and lakeshores recovery, 35 million
  • enhancement and development of the mountains, 100 million
  • agricultural irrigation system, 13 million
  • the forestry sector, 15 million.

Lastly, important investments are planned for the recovery of public buildings, housing and schools, for social policies and to support research and sport.
