The work is aimed at merging the motorway toll barriers of the State Border and Ventimiglia by creating a new toll gate with a high number of lanes (24 in total), in order to better meet the various needs of traffic and simultaneously enlarge the toll yard by creating more space for transiting vehicles, as well as to upgrade the site from an environmental and landscape perspective.
Therefore, the design includes:
- Demolition of the two currently existing barriers of the State Border, located directly on the motorway, and Ventimiglia, located on the lower yard, serving the town of Ventimiglia and the Valle Roja;
- Construction of a new single barrier on the motorway able to get the traffic moving from and to France, as well as from and to Ventimiglia and the Valle Roja, by modifying the access ramps;
- Widening and upgrading of the current yard through construction of a new shelter along with a new service building and a new maintenance center located on the mountain side.
