The Port of Venice is directly connected to the REV TD road and European network.
Road accessibility in the port
The Ports of Venice and Chioggia can be divided into three main sections: Maritime, Marghera, and Chioggia; they are connected to the national and European road network (Mediterranean and Baltic-Adriatic corridors).
The North Adriatic Sea Port Authority is constantly working to improve the road accessibility of the entire port system (commercial, industrial, and passenger terminals) by identifying solutions to alleviate secondary and urban traffic from heavy vehicles, thus facilitating the flow of traffic directly to the port and enhancing the safety of road transportation.
Marghera (Commercial, Industrial, and RoRo and Ro-Pax Terminals)
The Marghera port section, where the commercial, industrial, and Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax terminals are located, is accessed as follows:
- From the SOUTH via Via dell’Elettronica, Via della Chimica, and Via dell’Elettricità, directly connected to SR.11 and then to SS.309-E55.
- From the NORTH via Via del Commercio, Via dell’Elettricità, and Via dell’Elettronica, directly connected to SR.11 and then to the Mestre bypass road (A4-E70/E55 and A27) and SS.309-E55.
- From the EAST also via Via del Commercio, Via dell’Elettricità, and Via dell’Elettronica, directly connected to SR.11 and then to the Mestre bypass road (A4-E70/E55 and A27) and SS.309-E55.
Maritime, S. Marta, S. Basilio (Passenger Terminals)
Automobile access to the Marittima section and other insular port areas of Venice (S. Marta and S. Basilio) is always via SR.11 (Liberty Bridge), which is connected to the Romea National Road (SS309-E55) and highways (A4 and A27) through the Mestre bypass road. It is also connected to the Triestina National Road (SS14).
Chioggia (Commercial and Passenger Terminals)
Automobile access to the Chioggia section is through Via Maestri del Lavoro, directly connected to the SOUTH and NORTH via SS.309.
Road Network Improvements in Marghera
The North Adriatic Sea Port Authority, Ports of Venice and Chioggia collaborates with other institutions to alleviate local roads from heavy traffic.
Starting from 2024, various infrastructure projects will be initiated to ensure smoother traffic flow, improve road safety conditions and travel times, as well as separate light and heavy traffic through the construction of roundabouts, functional upgrades to Via dell’Elettricità, and the construction of overpasses.
