Obstacles to accessibility removed at 10 Sant Francesc crosswalks

foto-pas-de-vianants-sant-fran1The Formentera Council infrastructure office reports that construction features making access difficult or impossible—also known as “architectural barriers”—were taken out at 10 pedestrian crosswalks around Sant Francesc. Infrastructure and mobility councillor Rafael González gave account of the changes today, seven of which happened along avinguda 8 d'agost, two on carrer Sa Senieta and one on Pla del Rei.

González said picks of the crosswalks to be upgraded responded to requests by islanders with reduced mobility and the €32,468 (VAT included), one-month project was included in December's “Sustainable Mobility Plan” (Pla de Mobilitat Sostenible).

Fourth push of term
The councillor said it has been the fourth operation to erase hurdles to mobility in the last three years. The first time, local associations requested and fast-tracked the upgrades as part of the island's “participatory spending” initiative. The second aimed to improve access to schools, and the third was performed on the pavements and entrances at la Savina's Illes Pitiüses park.
