Italy court revokes order that halted work on TAP pipeline
An Italian court has revoked an order that had halted work to remove olive trees from the pathway of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), a lawyer involved in the case said.
Opposition from the local town council and the regional government of Apulia has caused a series of delays to the project.
Earlier this month a court issued the order to suspend the work to remove the olive trees at the behest of the Region.
"The court has annulled that sentence," Reuters cited a lawyer for the Region Mariano Alterio as saying.
A spokesman for TAP Italy also confirmed the court's decision.
