The project for linking the port to the motorway is known as the "Great Triestine Road Network".
In 1988 the first stretch was opened to traffic. In a few days' time, to the joy of the environmentalists who have for years protested against any further destruction, the project will be completed.
The spaghetti junction in this photo shows just a small part of the humongous road works it has involved: bridges, link roads and tunnels have all completely destroyed our green suburbs; indeed this mass of asphalt has replaced what was, till 18 months ago, a beautiful little country road. There are just a few finishing touches to be made before the interminable traffic of articulated lorries can finally begin.
Down with nature! Long live (unrestrainable) progress!
