Stopping the development of Venice’s Piazzale Roma

Plans to develop the vehicle arrival point in Venice, Piazzale Roma, have been challenged by Venice’s Safeguarding Commission. Over the last 2-3 years, plans have evolved to double the size of the San Marco parking facility alongside the square of Piazzale Roma. Given the inadequate parking facilities in Venice, this would reduce queuing for parking and make life easier for visiting motorists. But on 2 February 2011, Venice’s Safeguarding Commission was reported to be blocking plans for the new garage by Venice City Council.
The article was written by Enrico Tantucci and published by the newspaper La Nuova di Venezia e Mestre and can be read here:This is a link to the story:
