Afternoon all. It's a hazy, cloudy day in Ischia today with a current temperature of 20° Celsius (68° Fahrenheit). However, the big news of the day is that plans for a bridge to link the island to Naples have finally been approved with construction work set to begin shortly. The news represents a huge breakthrough for tourism in Ischia with many visitors now able to plan their trips by car or train. The bridge will comfortably be the longest in the world when completed and will comprise one level with a dual carriageway road and another level with a railway line. Journey times will be slashed with the high-speed train estimated to take just 15 minutes from the centre of Naples. Talks are still taking place over a proposed junction at Procida. More on this tomorrow... Ciao :-)
