The in-depth studies were aimed in particular at the following areas:
1) Optimization of soil consumption, inspection of the geometry and operational characteristics of the interconnections and location of further intermediate junctions;
2) Limitation of effects on areas of particular natural value;
3) Containment and abatement of potential impact.
A transport study was carried out at the same time aimed at predicting the amount of traffic that will use the Cispadano corridor in the medium-long term. The results obtained went beyond the working life of the infrastructure (2025) and showed that it would become necessary to widen the motorway to three lanes. For this reason, space has already been left in the centre for constructing a third lane.
This choice led to building a road which occupies an overall space that will not need to be change. This has obvious economic, practical and land use advantages, and reduces the potential environmental impact of future building works.
