The requisite papers have been signed off, and the new road will be extended from Rosolini to Modica. The contracts will be awarded in the near future once the tenders have been received, and work can start immediately. It will be carried out in 3 sections, Rosolini-Ispica, Ispica – Pozzallo, Pozzallo – Modica and the route has already been confirmed with the necessary expropriations already made. How long the actual work will take is anyone’s guess, but it now looks as if the province of Ragusa is to get a major road – as it is the only remaining province without a major road of some sort. Once completed it will cut travel time to Siracusa and Catania by about 20 minutes.
