The Cantonal Territorial Department announced today that work will commence on Monday 18 May to construct a further section of the Luganese regional cycle network between Davesco and Cadro in Lugano. The new route which will be 450 meters long will be built along the route of the former Lugano-Cadro-Dino railway and involves the construction of two new walkways.

The first walkway, which will be built in the Cossio area, will take advantage of what remains of the old railway bridge, restoring its historical and architectural value and enhancing its characteristic metal and stone elements. The second will be built shortly after and will go down to Pregassona, on via Favadin. The project will allow pedestrians and cyclists to not have to access the main road which will start from the Cossio crossroads to Via Favadin. The new cycle path will allow users to avoid vehicular traffic offering safer travel. Whilst the upgrades are being made it will also enhance the characteristic elements of the old railway track. The projects fall within the plans of the second generation Luganese agglomeration plan (PAL2) and aim to significantly improve slow mobility in the areas between Cadro and Pregassona. The expected construction cost is approximately 1.7 million francs. The funding is divided into the following breakdown: 35% Confederation (within the Lugano agglomeration program), 36% Canton, 29% Luganese Regional Transport Commission (CRTL). During the duration of the works - which will continue until the summer of 2021 - vehicular traffic will be managed depending on the needs, through a traffic light system or with the help of security agents.

The Department of the Territory therefore invites users to follow the signs displayed and to pay the attention when passing along the construction site for the safety of operators.

    The University of Friborg along with USI are the universities most applied for by Ticinesi freshmen

    EDUCATION

    After last year’s counter-overtaking, the University of Friborg once again surpasses the University of Italian Switzerland (USI). No, we are not talking about a rivalry such as the one between Oxford and Cambridge complete with a regatta on the Thames, but rather the annual statistics on the satisfaction of freshmen from Ticino. Basically, abandoning sports metaphors, in the academic year 2019/2020 Fribourg has returned to be the most popular among new students in our canton, with 140 new registrations against 96 USI, in turn overtaken by Lausanne (120 registrations) and Zurich (111). This is what emerges from the annual overviewof the academic choices of university students from Ticino made by the Statistical Office (USTAT).
