New push to tally users of Formentera roads starts Friday

foto 2022 carreteresThe Formentera Office of Mobility is pleased to report that an effort to determine how local roads are used will run from Friday 5 August to Sunday 14 August. "Through a combination of manual and automatic counts using sensors strategically placed on local roads, we will tally pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles and cars, as well as bus and cab riders, to assess the current state of mobility on the island of Formentera", explained Rafael González, councillor of mobility.

Conducted in 2017, 2019 and 2021, the counts are included in the island's Sustainable Mobility Plan. "This summer's data, compared with those of previous years, will enable us to get a sense of how mobility on the island is changing and how this is affected by regulatory measures that have been put in place", added the councillor.

Tallies of individuals and vehicles will be based on the mode of transport used and conducted in the first half of August, when use of local roads is at its peak. Pedestrian and bicycle counters have been installed at six strategic points along the island's network of Rutes Verdes nature trails. Seven manual counts will be done on roads, where 15 automatic sensors have been installed as well. Users of the public bus and cab service will be counted too.

The effort will include counts and surveys in the Port of La Savina, where visitors will be counted and interviews tailored to find out how Formentera's visitors travel and whether they overnight on the island.
