About 40 thousand people — according to organizers — came to Turin for a demonstration in defense of the construction of high speed railway Lyon-Turin. Last Wednesday the city Council decided to suspend work.
Against the road and almost 60-kilometer tunnel actively advocate “green”. New Italian government was also opposed to the enormous spending on the project dubious from the point of view of Ministers, of the importance.
Supporters of the route believe that the project will bring new jobs, will relieve the roads and thereby improve the environmental situation.
