Abstract

In this paper, the author presents transport analysis carried on within the Advisorship of feasibility study of «connections between Sicily and the Mainland». Firstly, values of the current traffic flows, both for passengers and freights, from and towards Sicily, are presented outlining the shares crossing the Straits; then, last years trends of traffic flows and critical points of the existing crossing system among Messina, Villa San Giovanni and Reggio Calabria are described. Under the hypothesis of «low» or «high» economic growth in Southern Italy, travel demand forecasting, as well as the relative shares among different transport modes, are presented. As in the «high» growth scenario the realization of the interventions already planned to improve the actual crossing system, is not adequate to the traffic flows, starting from the analysis of the critical points outlined, the interventions which is possible to undertake in order to prevent them are exposed, and two alternative solutions, i.e. the Bridge or the infrastructural and logistic improvement of the crossing system by ferries, are presented and discussed.
