The City Council of Torres de Cotillas is updating the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (PMUS), framed in the Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development Strategy (EDUSI) 'Las Torres Conecta' which is 80% co-financed by the European Development Fund Regional (ERDF), through the Multiregional Operational Program of Spain 2014-2020.
This action is framed in Line of Action LA 02, 'Development of sustainable urban mobility, connection with districts and industrial areas', belonging to thematic objective 4 (OT4)' Encourage the transition to a low carbon economy in all sectors '.
Now the phase begins to plan and schedule the proposals corresponding to all the areas that affect mobility.
Contributions may be made through an online form (https://www.e-encuesta.com/r/y6fDPtk4ruB6LhdA7J5kFg/), as well as in person at the informative sessions in which the main results of the diagnosis will be presented ( http://bit.ly/2TiTNmc) and ideas can be provided for incorporation into the PMUS update.
These sessions will be held on Thursday, January 16 in the plenary hall of the City Hall at 12 noon, for local companies and concessionaires;
and at 7.30 pm, for local associations and the general public.
"We expect an important participation of our neighbors, we want that with their collaboration they contribute their experience and knowledge of the municipality, as well as their concerns about the mobility of the future in Las Torres de Cotillas," explains the mayor, Joaquín Vela Fernández.
Looking for a balance
This update of the PMUS began last September, with the information collection phase carried out last through telephone surveys of residents of the municipality, street surveys, inventories and gauging.
With all these data an analysis has been carried out and the diagnosis document has been prepared, which has allowed identifying the needs and deficiencies of the current mobility model, as well as the opportunities for improvement.
"The PMUS must ensure a balance between the needs of mobility and accessibility, in a way that favors the protection of the environment, boosts economic development and improves social inclusion, basic principles for achieving sustainable mobility," says Vela Fernández.
This balance has to translate into an improvement in the mobility of citizens, with coherent networks of pedestrians and bicycles, guaranteeing access to public transport, pacifying traffic, promoting more sustainable means of transport and achieving increased security. vial
Some objectives that will lead to a decrease in accidents and a decrease in pollution, both environmental and acoustic, derived from traffic.
