FLORENCE (Reuters) – Italy’s transport minister said on Thursday the government was not in a position to say when it would decide over the possible revocation of Atlantia’s <ATL.MI> motorway concession.

“Today I am not in a position to give you a date,” Transport Minister Paola De Micheli told reporters on the sidelines of an event in Florence, adding the issue was not a political one.

“Defending the public interest is our lodestar”, she added.

Since the deadly collapse of a motorway bridge operated by Atlantia last year, Italy’s 5-Star Movement has been asking for the revocation of the infrastructure group’s concession.
