Traffic restored in via Paladini where yesterday residents held their breath for several hours due to a gas leak that kept firefighters, police, 118 and the Red Cross busy for hours. Last night the gas company, once it identified the exact point from which the leak had started, dug for several meters to create a new maneuvering chamber to interrupt the flow. This morning the works have been completed and the area of ​​the works has been circumscribed. Traffic resumed regularly. Until midnight the mayor Roberto Gambino also remained present to follow the works and constantly inform the citizens of what was happening. The first citizen confirms that a worker would have been the cause of the escape during the works of Enel. “With a sort of horizontal excavator – explained Gambino – the pipeline was mistakenly broken. Fortunately the point where it broke was right next to the hole made during the works and therefore the gas escaped without being channeled. In that case the risk of explosions would have been greater “. The intervention began yesterday afternoon at 6.30 pm and ended this morning. In a large part of the city you could smell the acrid smell of gas and the Nissenians followed with apprehension the entire evolution of the story.
