The planning territory arises from an overall assessment of the situation in Alto Ticino to determine a new corridor between Lavorgo and Airolo (SPTL 106). The purpose of this planning territory is a general restructuring of the district's lines and, importantly, to relieve the burden on the valuable landscapes.
From an electricity perspective, this advances the separation of the 380 kilovolt lines for the national and international transmission from the 220 kilovolt lines to supply and transmit the local production, which eliminates the current overload problems.
Besides increasing the transfer capacity (transportation) of the production from the Maggia Valley, which is currently inadequate, the «Solution for Restructuring» makes a significant contribution to relieving the burden on valuable landscapes, especially by dismantling the 220-kilovolt Peccia – Lavorgo, Peccia – Handegg and Robiei – Innertkirchen lines. This enables important improvements to the landscape to be implemented in the areas of Alpe Zaria (registered in the Federal Inventory of Moorlands of Exceptional Beauty and of National Importance), Campolungo (registered in the Federal Inventory of Landscapes and Natural Monuments of National Importance), Cristallina, in the lower Maggia Valley and in the Bedretto Valley. The proposed solution also relieves the burden on various residential and industrial zones, especially between Cevio and Avegno, in Cardada and in the Riazzino region.
