Definitive design for the crossroads between the primary regional axes on the border between the provinces of Parma and Reggio Emilia
Assignment for the definitive design of the crossing between the primary regional roads that cross near the town of San Polo d’Enza, made up of:

  • the new Pedemontana (road parallele to the Apennine foothills) in the section between the bridge on the Parma River, in Mamiano (Province f Parma) and Quattro Castella (Province of Reggio Emilia);
  • the new Enza Valley axis between Canossa and Barcaccia on the Reggio Emilia side.

The project defined the ideal route for the two road connections in the territory on the two sides of the Enza River, considering various alternatives, also on a local level, along with the best connections to the existing road network and the nearby inhabited areas.

The purpose of the project is to identify the most sustainable routes that can substitute the historical traffic routes that pass through the inhabited areas, thus improving the quality of life in terms of health, safety and social areas.
The project was also developed considering landscape and environment:

  • the Val d’Enza axis represents the “strada dei castelli” (the trail of castles) connecting the new motorway exit of Campegine-Caprara, on the A1, to the heart of the lands od Matilda of Tuscany as it climbs into the Apennines, passing along the Enza River area. It is an area of great natural, landscape and historical-architectural importance which includes the castles of Montecchio, Montechiarugolo, San Polo, Guardasone, Rossena and Canossa;
  • the Pedemontana axis, which runs along the Apennine foothills is the traverse connection between territories with a very high level of agriculture and food and wine production, among the most important in the world, such as the area of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Prosciutto di Parma.

The project was discussed on a local and provincial level, including local residence affected by it as well as with municipal authorities. Once the project was approved, it was used as the “guide” for the creation of the first implementation extracts regarding the San Polo d’Enza by-pass in the north-south direction and the east-west Traversetolo by-pass.
