Due to driving bans for heavy traffic, a truck traffic jam of around 80 kilometers long had formed on the Brenner motorway heading north. According to “”, Italian Deputy Prime Minister and Transport Minister Matteo Salvini described this situation as an “ecological, economic and social disgrace”.

He went on to call on the European institutions to intervene to defend Italy, but above all to maintain legality.

Salvini is quoted by news outlets as saying he expects the European Court of Justice, which the Italian government has appealed, to put an end to the “arrogant and unlawful attitude of the Austrian government.” This attitude would cause enormous damage to the environment and economic freedom – he alleged.
