CYCLE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE BAY OF PASAIA AND DONOSTIA - SAN SEBASTIAN
The association of urban cyclists / expert "Kalapie" goes to
public administrations straight responsible for the development of
the cycle network in Donostialdea and Gipuzkoa to request the writing
of the project of construction of a cycle connection between
municipalities of the bay of Pasaia and the capital of Guipúzcoa.
The combination in the last ten years of public performances,
demands of the civil society and the answer of the citizenship, there is
caused a clear recovery of the bicycle as way of
transport in the daily activities. This recovery has been more
spectacular in the capital donostiarra, where it has passed of one
anecdotal presence of the bicycle in the daily activities, to
the consideration of this vehicle as an indispensable element in
environmental progress of our environment, and in the related performances
in against the climate change.
But this encouraging panorama of the capital there is not transcendido
still to the Donostialdea environment. Despite positive achievements in
some municipalities (Errenteria, Hernani, Astigarraga, Lasarte - Oria,
etc.), the regional connections are still almost nonexistent, in
special the one that Donostia - San Sebastian must join with the municipalities
neighboring, since they are those who have a major potential of
displacements in bicycle for the volume of existing population.
At present, it is foreseen that the cycle network of Donostia - San
Sebastián comes up to the Ategorrieta clock in the next months.
Errenteria has developed a mesh of quite extensive bidegorris
with connections up to Oiartzun. In the environmental recovery of
front of Pasai Antxo the reduction of the space is foreseen
destined for the motorized vehicles and the implantation of a route
cyclist from the high place of Capuchins up to Buenavista.
This panorama must incite to the implied public administrations,
in particular to the Statutory Delegation of Gipuzkoa and to the Town hall of
Donostia - San Sebastian, to accelerate the process that he leads to
achievement of the cycle connection between the East of the capital
from Guipúzcoa and the Bay of Pasaia.
Since the construction projects have not been written yet,
this should be a task to be realized in an immediate way. With this one
given step one might raise the effective achievement of this one
cycle infrastructure during the first months of the year 2008.
It is not necessary to insist on the collective and individual benefits of
the bicycle opposite to the motorized mobility. Every trip in motorcar
that changes for a trip into bicycle supposes a contribution
indisputable to the environmental progress, reduction of harmful emission,
prevention of the climate change, reduction of consumption of energies not
renewable, and progress of the physical and mental health of the person that
it happens to use the bicycle. To support it it is necessary to impel
measurements so that the cycle displacements are comfortable and sure.
