A prototype of a road test program for the Lincoln Road mall in central Rome is expected to be unveiled in October.
The program, which was announced at a press conference on Monday, aims to test whether the mall can withstand heavy traffic.
The road test is being conducted by the Italian government’s department of road safety, which is the equivalent of a public safety agency.
The mall will be able to test the system from October 17-21, according to the press release.
The project is aimed at improving the safety of Italian roads by allowing the mall to operate in less congested conditions.
The test will allow the mall operators to learn the conditions, as well as the systems to make the mall safer, according the press conference.
The system was introduced at the start of the year and was introduced by the Rome City Council.
The road test was the first step of a five-month project to develop the mall, which opened on November 1.
