SAN SEBASTIÁN. DV. The Strategic Plan of the Bicycle 2008-11 will dedicate the culmination of the network of bidegorris inside and out of the city, by means of an institutional investment for 8 million euros that will allow to connect San Sebastian with Pasaia, Astigarraga and Lasarte-Oria.
This document prepared by the department of Mobility of the Town hall, has been presented to the association Kalapie, Adviser of Mobility was raised yesterday to the Advice, and his definitive approval is foreseen next month. The work incorporates a balance of the Plan of Promotion of the Use of the Bicycle of the year 2000 and reflects on the importance acquired by the bicycle in the city. The document puts the point of view to four years seen and establishes the new targets that the medium-term Town hall raises.
In addition to-50 kilometers of bidegorris complete the urban cycle network - the persons in charge of this department are going to be employed at next years for extending the red asphalt towards the metropolitan environment, what will allow to satisfy the demands of the neighbors of peripheral quarters as Farrier, Altza, Intxaurrondo, Loiola, Martutene and Zubieta to be able to benefit from this transport way. The company, logically, is supramunicipal. The Strategic Plan codes in approximately 8 million euros what will find it hard to complete this network, but the important thing the interinstitutional understanding will be to turn in fact this target.
The councilman of Mobility, Ernesto Gasco, has today an interview with the statutory deputy of Territorial Arrangement, They plow - tza Tapia, to speak, between other questions, about this matter. The extension of the rail bike from In-txaurrondo up to Farrier and Pasaia would be possible across the ancient tunnel of the tramcar of Txaparrene. The municipal target in Loiola is, once between in functioning the divided highway of the Urumea, to turn the passage - today of statutory competition - into an urban avenue with bidegorri up to Martutene, where there would be connected by the rail bike that the Delegation has constructed up to Astigarraga. The Town hall has taken the bidegorri up to Añorga Txiki and the next target in this area would be to extend the line up to Lasarte Oria and Zubieta.
But the Strategic Plan of the Bicycle speaks about more things, like the creation of a commission formed by associations of users, technical staff and politicians to watch and to do a pursuit of the transport policies in bicycle. The document bets for extending the human resources dedicated to the planning and promotion of the bike, and for «systematizing the maintenance and the cleanliness» of the bidegorris network.
The new quarters that arise in the city are provided with his cycle network incorporated from the phase of planning, but: how «densificar the network» in the quarters of the whole life? Till now segregated rails or rails of coexistence have been created with the pedestrians. But to complete the network it will be necessary that bicycles and vehicles share also the roadway. This will be possible thanks to the generalization, in streets that there are no arteries of circulation, of «areas 30». Areas where the cars will not be able to circulate to any more than 30 km/h, between other things because they will have to share the rail with the bicycles.
Also several plans will be started: of formation in the use of the bike; of signaling of the routes; plans with companies to subsidize a 'green' mobility of the personnel; and a communication strategy to report of the Plan of Sustainable Mobility. The Strategic Plan considers to tackle also the problem of the temporary parking and of long stays of the bikes, and the interform with buses and train.
