The motorway network

Serving the local area to support mobility and economic development
The composition of the network

The motorway network (A4 and A31), run by the Company on a concessionary basis, covers 235.6 km and is part of Europe's Mediterranean corridor, connecting Italy's Lombardy region to the Veneto region and Eastern Europe. This stretch of motorway intersects the A21 Brescia - Piacenza, the A22 Brennero - Modena and the A13 Padua - Bologna.

It is also part of the main A31 Valdastico network which currently runs from Canda (State Road no.  434) to Piovene Rocchette, covering a total of 89.5 km.

Intermodal transport is guaranteed through a vast network of infrastructure in the area of reference: in fact, the A4 motorway practically runs parallel to the Milan - Venice railway line, alongside which there are numerous railway stations as well as some freight terminals (Verona/Quadrante Europa, Padua). The airports of Milan - Linate, Bergamo - Orio al Serio, Brescia - Montichiari, Verona - Villafranca and Venice - Tessera are all situated along the A4 motorway, as is the port of Venice.

The alternative road network, also used in case of serious emergencies, is made up of the local ring roads of Lonato, Verona, Vicenza and Padua, Regional Road (“S.R.”) no.  11 which runs almost parallel to the motorway,  State Road (“S.S.”) no.  434 from Verona to Rovigo, known as the “Transpolesana”, which intersects the A31 Valdastico Sud motorway at Canda, and other state and/or provincial roads marked out locally. With regard to the motorway network, other possible alternatives are the Brennero motorway (A22), the Padua - Bologna motorway (A13), the Milan - Bologna motorway (A1) and the Brescia - Piacenza motorway (A21).

The carriageway in the direction of Venice is known as “Est” (East), whereas the one in the direction of Milan is known as “Ovest” (West). 

Each carriageway is made up of:

  • Emergency lane ( 3.00 m wide);
  • First lane reserved for normal travel ( 3.50 m wide);
  • Second and third lane reserved for overtaking ( 3.75 m wide).

Along the A4 motorway, there are 121 overpasses, all of which are numbered with dedicated signs, 2 tunnels with CCTV in both directions (Monte Berici - Vi), approximately 300 m and 600 m long, respectively, and 290 bridges and viaducts.

The carriageway in the direction of Canda is known as “Sud” (South), whereas the one in the direction of Piovene Rocchette is known as “Nord” (North). Each carriageway is made up of:

  • Emergency lane ( 3.00 m wide);
  • First lane reserved for normal travel ( 3.50 m wide);
  • Second lane reserved for overtaking ( 3.75 m wide).

Along the A31 motorway, there are 29 overpasses, all of which are numbered with dedicated signs, and 53 bridges and viaducts.
