For this, the new guidelines will be followed, such as -for example- that the pavement on the sidewalk is continuous and non-slip, that there is a street lighting line with a minimum illumination of 20 lux, that the sidewalks do not have superior obstacles and have a clear width of passage not less than 1'50 meters… In addition, fords will be built and the horizontal and vertical signage will be renewed to organize traffic around the park, carrying out the zebra crossings that guarantee the continuity of pedestrian routes.
"The objective is to promote the autonomous and continuous circulation of all people, and guarantee the non-discriminatory use of these pedestrian routes," highlights the mayor.
