Controversial Tav rail line treaty to be ratified in weeks

Rome, May 16 - The international treaty for the controversial Tav high-speed rail line running from Lyon to Turin will be ratified by Italy's parliament in the next two weeks, Infrastructure Minister Maurizio Lupi said on Thursday. Critics of the rail link have staged violent protests since a construction site for the high-speed rail connection opened outside Turin in 2011, denouncing its high cost and claiming it will cause environmental damage. Despite the backlash, the government has said that construction will continue as planned and that the project is an important driver of economic growth.
