Roma’s long-awaited stadium project is set to be approved by the city’s municipality.

The stadium – which is being planned in the Pietralata area of the Italian capital – is now being studied by the local municipality, reports Il Messaggero, after a review that began in early October.

According to the newspaper, the municipality’s approval will be followed up by a series of suggestions and indications meant to be taken into consideration for the final project.

The approval will be released within the next two weeks, allowing the project to be discussed on a political level by various board commissions with the hope of obtaining a verdict within the end of spring.

The Pietralata project calls for Roma to build a 55,000-seat stadium about 600 meters from Tiburtina station.

Some works included in the project: among these three cycle-pedestrian bridges; four parking lots with 3,660 spaces, and the construction of two parks.
