In the road plan approved by
Commissario Pavone on January 29th 2013 and afterwards confirmed
by Sindaco Palestra on September 9th 2013 you can read that the
in-famous "Tangenzialina di Arese" would mean an "external
variation, west of Arese city, that could reduce the crossing
Due to the failed approval of
this road, according to the plan, it is mandatory to find new
alternative solutions "as to rationalize traffic flows that will
surely increase in comparison to the actual situation and that
will be due to the inducted traffic attracted by the future
expansion [on ex-Alfa area]"
How do they solve this issue?
According to the technicians,
Arese road are nowadays characterized by "an excessive frequency
at the intersections, narrowing of the road and failed traffic
simplification that are inducing congestion traffic and
excessive speed. The example is Monte Resegone - Sempione
The objective that
technicians, Commissario and Sindaco have is to give life to: "a
traffic regimen without flow interruptions ". Therefore: they
want to erase all the intersections and create only roundabouts
on a fluid traffic road (with 50 km/h speed limit and one zone
at 30 km/h) that will cross Arese to get from the Varesina to
the ex-Alfa area.
The consideration is that,
"apart from the existing traffic volume, this road plan will
have to take care also of the new traffic due to the future
ex-Alfa Shopping Mall. "
Always according to the approved and confirmed
traffic plan: "Those interventions are even more needed in the
complete picture since there won't be any "tangenzialina di
Terrazzano" to absorb this flow. The role of the new axis will
be to absorb it all."; this traffic will therefore cross Arese
in its heart and we have called it "Diametralina", a line that
crosses a circle just like its diameter does.
We already know that actual PM10 values are
already out of European given limits: we therefore expect life
quality in Arese to slope down and Arese future to be extremely
What will it happen when
people will see a huge traffic in front of their houses with
this new traffic plan? What will our Arese become?
Much more, as if it wasn't
"Expected traffic value will be much higher than
the existing ones not only due to the new ex-Alfa area Shopping
Mall and future evolution but also due to new roads that will
connect to Milan, to Pero train station and to Pero MM."
In the document, indeed, we
will find a "new link between viale de Gasperi and via Arese,
What can we say? Arese will
not maybe see the in-famous and discussed: it will see something
much worse. A real traffic magnet in the middle of its heart.
