09/05/08. DV.Segundo Izpizua and Bermingham will have bidegorri signposted in half of the roadway

It will be a slightly costly performance but with the true one
relevancy. Fifteen Gros apples are going to turn after the summer
in a 'area 30', an ambience where the circulation speed will be
lower than the maxim allowed in city, which will include progress
pedestrian and new bidegorris, where bicycles and cars will share
it spread in the roadway.
The area concept 30 is not anything new in San Sebastian. It was begun to
to apply in Aiete and now is implanted in Intxaurrondo, but the project
that today reckons to approve the Town hall is the first performance
global inside a quarter. The philosophy is than in the streets
not principal of a quarter measurements are applied of 'calmed' of
traffic in search of major road safety, minor traffic and minor noise.

This area 30 will understand 9,75 hectares of surface, in the polygon
that form the streets Big Route, Zabaleta, avenue of Navarre, I Marinate
Tabuyo and José Maria Soroa, an area of big residential thickness where
approximately 8.000 persons live. The performance reinforces other reforms
town-planning already reached in Gros, like the pedestrianization of San
Francisco and the construction of the bidegorri of the New street, and he keeps
coherence with those who will be tackled in the future, with
construction of the new square of Catalonia and the pedestrianization
partial of Zabaleta, as told the representative Mobility councilman,
Ernesto Gasco.

The project includes two principal performances. The reshaping
town-planning of two points of entry to this area 30 and the signaling
of a rail for bikes for the way of the roadway in two of

The creation of an area 30 happens for a correct signaling to
drivers of whom one enters an area of limited speed. With this one
target and with of improving substantially the pedestrian trips
he goes to re-design the Bermingham crossing with José Maria Soroa and of
the avenue Navarre with José Arana and Sailor Tabuyo. In the first point,
the sidewalks grow with the so called ears - sidewalk enlargement in
the meetings of the streets, which think about how to protect more the pedestrian and
to prevent the parking in these difficult points for
visibility of the drivers - the crosswalk is constructed
sobreelevado in the roadway - this has to brake the drivers and
he warns them that enter and circulate along an area of big thickness
pedestrian - there is remodeled the parking of the nearby environment, and they are created
specific squares for motorbikes.

Gasco made sure that the performance will not reduce parking squares
although yes some squares will be ordained as different form in
meetings of the streets.

The intervention in the access to the area 30 from the avenue of Navarre
it has similar characteristics: the entry is signposted, they are extended
the sidewalks with ears and the parking squares are rearranged. In
this point the pedestrian progress has almost sense if it fits
because the pedestrians have to give today an authentic detour for
to keep on going along along the avenue of Navarre.

Coexistence with the cars

But, undoubtedly, the element that is going to suppose major innovation with regard to
the current situation will be the tracing of two rails bike per Second
Izpizua and Bermingham. In both cases it will be a question of a rail in
the only sense - that of circulation of the cars - and it will pass for
center of the roadway. It will not be a bidegorri that counts with
balizamiento, simply it will be painted on the asphalt.«
it promotes this way so much the itineraries in bicycle as
speed limitation of the vehicles in the area. Bikes and vehicles
they coexist - they share the same circulation space - what it will force
to the cars to be circulated slowly, in consonance with the target of
calmed of the traffic that is chased», added the councilman.

The new rails bike will connect the cyclists with the rest of
network once reach the peatonalizada keep silent about San Francisco.

This politics to begin to plan the bidegorris for the roadway is
foreseen in the Plan of Sustainable Mobility and in the Local Plan of
It fights against the Climate change. The argument is that, realized
basic network (the arteries) with bidegorris segregated, the growth of
the rails for the interior of the quarters (the capillaries) it has to
to develop in coexistence with the cars in secondary roadways
of low circulation speed.

After the approval today of the tender of the works, it is estimated that
the same ones will be awarded in summer and that might will begin in
October. The works have a term of execution of one month, and one
initial budget for 109.762 euros. The performance is provided with one
subsidy for 58.785 euros granted by the Direction of Environment
of the Delegation of Gipuzkoa.

- Target: Creation of an area 30 inside the Gros quarter.
- End: Speed reduction of circulation, increase of the safety
road, minor acoustic contamination, and promotion of
pedestrian and cycle circulations.
- Spatial ambience: Fifteen apples understood between Big Route,
Zabaleta, avenue of Navarre, Sailor Tabuyo and José Maria Soroa.
- Performances: Reform of the meetings of the streets
Soroa-Bermingham and Navarre-Tabuyo. Materialization of two rails
bike for the center of the roadway of Bermingham and Segundo Izpizua.
- You act: After the summer.
