ESTEPONA town hall will be promoting the use of bicycles and the importance of pedestrianisation at an event for European Mobility Week next week.
Development and Infrastructure councillor Ana Velasco said the town hall is making ‘a serious commitment to recover spaces for pedestrians’ with several projects.
These include the remodeling of the old town, which has already allowed for the pedestrianisation of more than 17km.
And the coastal corridor, which will connect 22km of coastline which will be accessible on foot and bike.
It also wants to extend the bike lane network in areas like the second ring road.
On June 18, the town hall implemented the partial and provisional pedestrianization of Calle Terraza, right on the stretch between Avenida de Espana and Calle Zaragoza.
It has not yet been revealed if this will remain after the summer trial ends.
The Mobility Week activities include a workshop aimed at women who do not usually use a bicycle but are interested in incorporating it into their travel or leisure time.
The activity, which is part of the ‘Mobility and Gender’ program, will take place at the Puerto Deportivo on Tuesday.
On Thursday, ‘Play in the street’ will be held on Plaza Antonia Guerrero , where schoolchildren will have the opportunity to carry out mobility workshops and traditional children’s games, with the aim of recovering public spaces for pedestrians.
The week will conclude on Sunday with the Great Mobility Festival, which will feature a cycling tour through the city centre, a ground drone circuit, bicycle repair demonstration, mobility circuit organised by the ONCE and demonstrations of vehicles with sustainable mobility .
