Later this morning Roma representatives are set to conduct an official site inspection of the Pietralata area where the club plan to build their new stadium.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma will meet with members of the Sports and Urban Planning Commission who will help oversee the various details of the established location.

Verifications will be carried out with regards to the accessibility of metro station Quintiliani and Tiburtina railway station.

The two parties will also discuss in more detail the consequences the construction of the stadium might have on the access to Pertini hospital which is located nearby.
