The Marche–Umbria Quadrilateral Highway project will support the development of this relatively isolated part of central Italy. Commissioned by ANAS, the state entity responsible for the country’s road and highway network, the construction of this sustainable infrastructure also involves more than 450 local suppliers.

In terms of sustainability, the Quadrilateral will contribute to a 20% reduction in travel times between Perugia and Ancona, reduce traffic on other roads and cut down on harmful vehicle emissions by 80%.

Advantages and benefits of the work

Reduced travel times on the Perugia – Ancona route (Freeway)


Reduced traffic on the existing ordinary road (daily vehicles)
