Euro News reported that Italy has officially agreed to resume the building of the controversial Lyon-Turin high-speed railway link, which was first begun thirty years ago.

It's an ambitious engineering feat that involves finishing a 57.5 kilometre-long tunnel under the Alps to connect France and Italy.

Mr David Sassoli, the European Parliament president confirmed that Italy has written to the EU pledging to complete the rail link with France, which is partly funded by the EU.

He said the letter was "good news".

The long-running saga, which has faced opposition from environmentalists and local communities, is splitting Italy's current coalition.

Matteo Salvini's League party support the project but its governing party, the Five-Star Movement, opposes it.
