[The groups in favor of sustainable mobility start 2021 pedaling through the streets of Cartagena (03/01/2021)

| To denounce the passivity of the municipal government team and the sloppiness in carrying out its functions, in terms of urban safety and sustainable mobility.

refers | Faced with the lousy management of Mayor Anabel Castej and Councilor Juan Pedro Torralba, the active sustainable mobility collectives begin with this BICIFESTATION a year of protests in the street, as well as legal actions through s of the prosecution, so that the Municipal Government acts once in the defense of the interests of pedestrians, people with reduced mobility and cyclists. "We started our tour-protest in the Plaza de las Puertas de San Jos , to draw attention to the lack of connection between the Capitanes Ripoll and Avenida Am rica bike lanes, with the existing one on the Cuesta del Batel A little paint would have been enough to do it, but neither politicians nor municipal technicians are concerned about the safety of bicycle users.

In addition, with the new traffic regulations it is done It is increasingly necessary to incorporate measures in cities that organize mobility and pacify traffic.

The existence of bike lanes segregated from traffic and pedestrians is essential "indicates Susana Ot n Costa del Collective MoviliCT for your Health " "The route continues towards another black point that remains unresolved, it is the pedestrian crossing of the Bª de la Concepci n bridge.

The municipal officials believe that, just by putting light signs at that point, they will increase safety; but experience shows us that this measure is insufficient because the path lights up when the vehicle is practically on top of it, so it leaves little room for maneuver.

What is truly effective, would be to raise the pace and reduce the speed of the road to 20 or 30 km / h.

" comments Eduardo Lucas Muñiz, from the Bicue Association. "The next stop takes us to the recently inaugurated Avenida del Cant n.

This work shows the rush to inaugurate works that our mayor has, possibly because her legislative period is ending.

She has lost a unique opportunity to convert this new road , in an example for active sustainable mobility.

We do not understand how in the times we live in, mistakes continue to be made on the sidewalks such as "the sign separates couples." We wonder if municipal technicians are professionally updated for urban planning of This century.

I do not understand what they do or if they prefer to look the other way, instead of supervising the execution of the work ", says Jos ngel Vivancos Rom n, coordinator of the V a Association Free". "In addition, we wonder why they skip their own Municipal Ordinance with impunity that collects the placement, at least every 100 m., Of pedestrian crossings on these roads.

In the section between the two roundabouts there are no not a single pedestrian crossing.

This fact, together with the permitted speed limit, 50km / h, which no one respects, will make crossing to one or the other side of the avenue reckless, "says Paula Valdivieso Ferr Mothers for Climate Index. "We left the Avenida del Cantón, with the feeling of being passing through a dam that will act to impound the waters in periods of heavy rains and create problems for the residents of B de la Concepci n, to go to the B de San Jos Obrero, where we denounced, as we did with Canteras in the previous Bicifestation, the lack of a sidewalk and a safe bike lane connecting with the urban center "says Loto Fern ndez R Mila of the MoviliCT for your Health Collective. The groups in favor of active mobility have contacted Juan Pedro Torralba and Noelia Arroyo, future mayor.

"It is necessary that the Mobility Table be convened and that the points that we have suggested be included in the agenda.

In addition, it is necessary that the future mayor of Cartagena knows first-hand, the proposals of the sustainable mobility collectives.

We are waiting for the response of both, "says Fernando, Tonda of the Colectivo Ciudadano MoviliCT for your Health.
