Oxen carts with passengers who were "parked" in Via Porto Romano with a rope that tied the beasts to the rings on the wall. The "Corso" was a cobblestone road with special guides for the wheels of the wagons until the end of the 40 ', it was paved: one of the first major works commissioned by the city to young, first attempt to curb youth unemployment.

Architecturally, the city developed horizontally, most of the houses were in one, maybe two or three floors. Olbia was becoming a city of ten thousand houses, already in the 60 '. Viale Aldo Moro was still a wide country road, crooked and uphill, which ended with the villas of Fideli, Pintus and Nieddu. West of the city houses ended in Via Sicilia, south stopped in Via Roma, just before the cemetery. There was no other district.

The railroad carried passengers to ferries passing by the train station and on Cuguttu, blocking traffic at three points. Typically, the train to Isola Bianca arrived on time at 10 to bring the passengers to ships. It was a coordinated effort between the two means: if the locomotive was late, the ferry was waiting, the traveler knew and traveled serene, would still arrive at its destination and come on board sooner or later. So it happened that this frequent departure delays of 20-30 minutes became a habit for those who could arrive on time.
