Benidorm will have an App to facilitate mobility and parking
On the official programming dates of the European Mobility Week, which starts today, Friday, September 16, Benidorm has started its specific programming that had its prelude, last week, with Benimov and Benimov Experience, the sustainable mobility vehicle fair, during the weekend.
As already announced by the Councilor for Mobility and Public Space, José Ramón González de Zárate, from today until next Thursday the 22nd, Benidorm will develop an extensive program of innovations in environmental matters focused on permanent work “in mobility, sustainability and climate change ” seeking to “make the city better, more comfortable and friendly”.
De Zárate announced today "the tender for the second project of Low Emission Zones" that will cover the entire city - "Levante, Poniente and Centro" - with which it is intended, in accordance with European, national and regional legislation, and by virtue of the recently approved municipal Plans on energy and adaptation to Climate Change, "improve the quality of life of residents and tourists, the air and their health" through initiatives that lead us to "strengthen the control of polluting vehicles, the loading and unloading of goods and the mobility of buses”. The Low Emissions project for the entire city of Benidorm has a grant from the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda.
But the main factor to be highlighted today, the councillor highlighted, is "having an application that will allow" being guided around Benidorm, locating parking lots and roads. The objective is "to reach guided parking" and "enhance the reality and effectiveness of low-emission zones".
With this initiative, González de Zárate pointed out, "Benidorm is more closely embedded in the DTI reality, modernizes the city and applies innovation to governance for the immediate future, absolutely innovative, for a better city for residents and tourists."
Also today and until 2:00 p.m., there have been guided climbs to the upper platform of the Tecnohito. The ascent has allowed a height view "of the new urban composition of Benidorm". Thus, De Zárate highlighted, that the new configuration of Mediterráneo Avenue area and the streets of Valencia, Puente, Pérez Llorca, Bilbao, Esperanto, Emilio Ortuño and Arcos Iris are an excellent reference for the change in the urban scene and public space, from the perspective of sustainability, which is planned by this Government Team”.
The program of activities and actions for Mobility Week will continue this weekend with the opening of the park and ride car park on Avenida de Cuba, which has 500 spaces and in which a service of the park and car park spaces will be established in the city. And on Sunday the two new electric buses that will operate in the city in the near future will be presented.
Between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., the journey will be free for passengers who board the line 3 bus at the town hall stop.
