GP: Introduction of low impact, access for all waterbuses in Venice - Italy PDF Print E-mail

This measure introduces waterbuses with a lower environmental impact, which are accessible to disabled users on a direct waterbus route previously inaccessible to users with disabilities.

Objectives / Innovative Aspects

Differentiate public waterborne transport in terms of environmental impact and access for all users through the introduction of greater capacity, lower environmental impact boats suitable for the transportation of disabled passengers in a boat route which has no direct transport services for passengers with disabilities.
These boats combines the best techniques available and permit disabled inhabitants of Murano to arrive at the bus terminal and reach the Mainland without changing boat. The design and engine permit good performance and lower environmental impact.

The Measures

ACTV’s investment plan foresees the construction of 3 waterbuses to take up service on the Piazzale Roma-Murano route. Due to regional funding, it is now possible to foresee the construction of 20 waterbuses of this kind. CIVITAS allows the construction of these waterbuses in a way that will reduce the impact on the physical environment (hulls adapted in order to reduce superficial wave action), will have more efficient motors (105 KW) and will consider the needs of disabled passengers.
The measures consist in:
concluding the detailed design and approval;
-tendering procedure, construction and testing of waterbuses;
introducing the new waterbuses in service;
-demonstrating the impacts through evaluation.

Implementation Status

At the end of 2004, the project for the construction of 20 waterbuses with the technical characteristics for the navigation on the around the city lines (which include the island of Murano) and for access to disabled passengers was approved.
There were 18 waterbuses under construction (9 at the Pesaro shipyard and 9 at the De Poli shipyard).
At the end of October 2006, 15 waterbuses were operating, 2 waterbuses must be delivered and one waterbus is waiting for the RINA’s official tests.
The construction of each waterbus has been supervised at the shipyards and RINA official tests have been done.
Initially ACTV has foreseen 20 new waterbuses within the Mobilis Project; now it has decided to close the action only with 18 new waterbuses.
The tender procedure has been done for 7+7 waterbuses with the possibility to take up an option for 3+3 waterbuses.
In the last period the ACTV Executive Board has decided to take up the option only for 2+2 waterbuses: in fact they thought that it would be more suitable to assign the regional financing to the extraordinary maintenance of the waterbuses already operating in the ACTV fleet.

(Expected) results

Reduce the travel time for people with disabilities from Murano Island to the Mainland by one half.
Have a positive impact on the lagoon environment by reducing wave action and air pollution.
