cycleAN AMBITIOUS bicycle scheme will soon roll into action in Andalucia, thanks to a multi-million euro investment by the Junta.

A total of 33.10 million has been earmarked for the Plan Andaluz de la Bicicleta, to encourage more people to travel on two wheels by 2020.

The investment is part of a transport plan approved for the region overall, of which 10.8 million is expected to be spent on projects in 2017.

They include a pedestrian and cycle path on the SE-30 ring road in Sevilla, and cycle lanes in cities such as Cordoba, Jaen and Huelva.

  1. So this says, we have to cycle on the A7 motorway beyond 2020, as nothing of this cycle money goes into the Malaga province. Obviously the most attractive tourist region is not worth an investment by the Junta de Andalucia.

  2. €33.1 Million of which will spent on over priced contracts to tjose who bribe the most… yet another brilliant way to decieve the public to believe they are doing something good (which is partially true) while robbing the tax payers in broad daylight.. It will be interesting to see the details of the spendings. With spains track record that earmarked fund will be empty before the project even begins with MPs walking away even richer…

    • It would also be interesting to know the source of these funds. Do they really come from the Spanish tax-payer – or the European ones in general?
      Probably makes no odds though, “consultants” aren’t fussy who pays them.

      • Well the record shows that EU has spent billions of euros over the years on “pointless” projects that did not do any good for the general public at all. Its shady politics and clever ways of disbursing money, contributed by each countries tax funds, to private sector without questions asked. Its quite brilliant organised crime if you ask me.

        2015 Spain received over 5 Billion euros (of 14 Billion euros total) towards “investment for growth and jobs” (thats third after Poland and Czech) and yet Spain has the 2nd highest rate of unemployment (after Greece) of almost 20% (more than double the average in EU)

        To give a country know for being highly corrupt that much money is either intentionally or incompetent, either way it is not reflecting very good on the EU. Its like giving weapons to a terrorist organisation and expecting them to use it only for good to protect people.

  3. Lex, good post.
    Junker sat on a committee for years that no one had heard of, very secretive. It was set up to stop EU countries from creating tax shelters within the Union. Every measure that was put forward to deal with countries like Luxembourg and the Netherlands was voted down by (big surprise here) Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Before Juncker created lots and lots of special tax deals for all the US and multi-nationals we all know and love, Luxembourg was a dirt poor little farming state of around 560,000. It now has the highest per capita income anywhere in the world and this creep was voted in almost unanimously to be president of the EU – you could’nt make it up, could you.

    Another fact – there are 30,000 lobbyists for big business in Brussels, who lavish no expense spared lunches, dinners and other goodies on the EU bureaucrats and have unlimited access to them – guess how much access the ordinary EU citizen has.
