The Municipal Group of VOX in the City of Granada has rejected that the Temporary Reserved Lanes (CRT) become definitive as they are proposed today by the Mobility Area, since a good purpose does not justify bad political planning.
Beatriz Sánchez Agustino, councilor of VOX, explained that “with the temporary lanes, unrelated measures have been taken, a 'posteriori' and improvising decisions that are not accepted by the people of Granada, since we receive constant complaints about traffic jams, the dangerousness of the turns to the right or the doubtful legality of the signage of the CRTs. In addition, since its implementation there is an evident malaise among the residents of which we have also learned through the complaints made public by the Ombudsman.
The appropriate thing, said the councilor for VOX in Granada, “would have been a work plan with an initial diagnosis; mark the objectives within a certain period and the goals to be achieved; the strategy or analysis of the most realistic alternatives for mobility in the capital and the metropolitan area; choose realistic alternatives to the use of vehicles; knowing the budget and the resources that we have, or those that we need, and the evaluation of their effectiveness, and that is why we insist they should not be definitive with the current approach ”.
“Since the presentation of the temporary lanes, seven months ago, there has been no global planning in which Granada capital and the metropolitan belt were taken into account, as we made it known to the government team since the presentation of the project. These CRTs had as basic objectives to reduce the traffic of private vehicles -which has fallen due to the mobility restrictions due to the COVID19 pandemic- or to generate confidence in urban public transport, something that has not happened because it requires measures forceful and incentives for citizens to use it regularly, "stressed Beatriz Sánchez Agustino.
