GP: Electronic control of the Mestre restricted access zone (Venice mainland) - Italy PDF Print E-mail

This measure focuses on mitigating traffic through a congestion charge on access to Mestre, thus contributing to a reduction in atmospheric and noise pollution.

Objectives / Innovative Aspects

To mitigate negative effects generated by vehicles in the city, which is already subject to high atmospheric and noise pollution. This is also due to the presence of the ring road in a residential centre.
•Bring air quality in the city of Venice within limits which respect M:M 60/02 which transposes the European directives on atmospheric pollution.
The instrument to be used to mitigate traffic is the introduction of a tariff system (congestion charge) on access, which has been shown to have effects of dissuasion and reorientation of demand for collective modes of transport (trains and general public transport services) and which permit the creation of works and services for the regulation of traffic, able to act positively on the reduction of pollution loads.
Congestion charging and electronic access control have not previously been applied to the city/metropolitan area of Venice.

The Measures

The Electronic access system project is based on the installation and use of circa 20/25 Electronic entry and access points following analysis to identify optimal points for intercepting traffic along the main access points of the city. The preparatory study has the task of identifying the exact number of access control points to be installed.

Research and technological development
City of Venice support to the study for the design of system and determination of number of access points necessary. Study to establish the tariffs to be applied with local commercial activities, residents and with the bordering municipalities comprising the metropolitan area

City of Venice supervision/support of the installation of electronic access points.

Communication campaign with local commercial activities, residents and with the bordering municipalities comprising the metropolitan area.

Implementation status

This measure, managed by the City of Venice and recently by ASM, has been modified because the new local administration has a different strategic objective. The idea is to still use electronic access control in the entire area of Mestre, but just study the possibility and make an evaluation of benefits by introducing a congestion charge..
Many surveys along Mestre roads have been carried our to find the best locations for the necessary number of electronic access control points for the entire area of the Mestre centre.
The Administration decided, with an official act to transfer this measure to A.S.M. while continuing to keep a control and planning role.
The system design has been improved after carrying out additional on-site inspections.
Installation work on data transmission network has commenced and the design and installation contract for the first 12 entry points has been awarded.
The City of Venice authorizations have arrived, but authorizations from other institutions regarding environmentally protected areas are still awaited. As a consequence, the work for connections have been started only in the 6 locations where only the City of Venice authorization was needed.
A modification of the design of the system has been decided: an upgraded version of the software, which has demonstrated to be more suitable to the system needs, has been ordered. Through this software the management of the transit permits and of the road pricing by the City of Venice will be easier.

(Expected) results

Reduction by 10-15% in the number of cars entering the city by 2008. This is in line with the results seen in other cities such as London and Florence.
A 40% reduction in atmospheric polluting emissions due to traffic.
