“The Presidents Giorgio Mencaroni and Massimo Guasconi in thanking the media for the attention they wanted to devote to the joint position of the Chambers of Commerce of Umbria and Arezzo-Siena on the need to build a station on the Alta Milan-Salerno speed which acts as an economic flywheel for Umbria and Tuscany, following improper interpretations made by some commentators, intend to reaffirm what is contained in the signed document and in subsequent public declarations made “.
Thus begins the note of the Chambers of Commerce of Arezzo-Siena and Umbria on the joint document “Station on the High Speed Line”
“And that is that to make this project feasible and to ensure its sustainability, especially from an economic-managerial point of view, the unity of purpose of all the institutions that represent the territories concerned is necessary, without exception. Aware of the existence of several hypotheses for the location of the station in the basin concerned, Guasconi and Mencaroni are certain that this, if managed in a constructive and unitary manner, without sterile parochialism, can represent an element of advantage in the path necessary to give substance to the project ” they continue.
“A plurality of technical solutions can in fact allow the technicians and administrators of the State Railways to have a wider range of choices in identifying a location that is based exclusively on criteria of maximum efficiency and profitability. This is a position that is also shared by all the economic categories of the provinces of Arezzo, Perugia, Siena and Terni who strongly support, in the interest of the companies and citizens concerned, the need to create a station with the utmost urgency allow access to high-speed trains to a macro-area with almost one and a half million inhabitants, with more than 200,000 companies, with over 600,000 employees. An indispensable station to favor the economic and social development of the people and businesses that reside and operate in these territories ”the presidents conclude..
