Consell de Formentera implements safety upgrades at Porto-salè turnout

Foto 2020 millors seguretat viariaThe Consell de Formentera has overseen changes designed to make the juncture of highway PM-820 and the carretera de Porto-salè safer. In recent years, the crossing has been the site of a disproportionate number of sometimes deadly accidents.

Upgrades:

-Solid line from the CEPSA petrol station into La Savina to prevent motorists from dangerous passing attempts.
-Reduced speed limit (from 90 km/h to 70 km/h) to prevent rear-end collisions, one of the most common accidents at this stretch of highway.
-Bigger and better signage highlighting reduced speed limit and dangerous intersection.
-Cleared vegetation near the intersection for improved visibility.

The measures put local roads on the right side of the island’s 2019 Plan for Sustainable Mobility, and are also in line with a measure which was green-lighted at local government’s February plenary session calling for urgent action at the section of highway in question.

The Consell has begun efforts to set up a radar speed trap between the CEPSA petrol station and the Porto-salè turnout, and is preparing upgrades that will make turning in and out easier for drivers.

Crews clean and disinfect Centre de Dia

foto 2020 netejaIn recent days Consell de Formentera cleaning crews have disinfected inner patio spaces and the exterior of the island’s adult care centre. Though personnel have begun returning to work, the Centre de Dia remains closed to the public, and islanders who normally get care there are currently benefitting from at-home and over-the-phone assistance from Formentera social services staff.

At present the local government’s cleaning team is still engaged in special operations to disinfect and pressure-wash high-traffic spots in the main towns of the island.

‘Talks for families and teachers’ closes with Estela Berenguer on “Formentera es queda a casa”

cartell v2020 xerradesThe Formentera Department of Social Welfare reports that social educator and family mediator Estela Berenguer will wrap up the lecture series ‘Xerrades per a famílies i docents’ (Talks for families and teachers) by unpacking the debate on punishments and rewards. “Recompenses i càstigs en polèmica” will air live on the Formentera es queda a casa Facebook page at 5.00pm on Thursday 21 May.

Thursday’s lecture concludes the nine-part series that began 10 October and which social welfare conseller Rafael Ramírez described as “a place to learn and share knowledge and experience with professionels about topics related to our children’s education”. “In the space of a year the number of lectures has jumped from five to nine, nearly doubling”, said Ramírez, who offered that, for the Formentera Department of Social Welfare, the aim of the initiative is “give families tools for tackling these issues”.

The FDSW-sponsored series received extra help from the island’s office of education, teachers’ resource centre and federation of parents.
