Barcelona is committed to sustainable mobility for the deconfinement, the residents of Barcelona will be able to enjoy 30,000 m2 of public space.
Joining the vast number of cities around the world that are committed to changing the way their citizens move, increasing the use of bicycles, pedestrians and public transport.
Widened footpaths, new cycle lanes and development of public transport routes, in many cases cyclists and public services will share spaces.
Shortened sections of the Diagonal and Gran Vía, expanding the pedestrian zones in the area.
21 km cycling use in the section of Gran Vía and Diagonal during the deconfinement are an excellent example of these measures, also imposing the speed limit of 30 km / h. We observe that Barcelona is committed to sustainable mobility.
Tactical urban planning development, stable cones, yellow paint and safety pots as separation, avoiding long waiting times for the creation of cycling spots and gives some margin in case any point of these routes must be modified. These measures ease the deconfinement in Barcelona.
Janet Sanz, deputy mayor for urban planning, confessed at the press conference on sustainable measures that “health must motivate all actions taken”.
